Resources for Stress Management

AAPS has seen a steady increase in the number of issues around workload and work hours. Many of you are being expected to work in excess of the 35-hour work week without specific tasks, assignments, or concern for increased workloads and added stress. You have also reported that despite being required to perform significant additional hours of work, many of you are being denied any reciprocal considerations such as flexible work arrangements and/or time off with pay.

While you are working with AAPS to find a solution to Hours of Work and Workload issues, support for navigating different types of leaves, or accommodations for remaining at work.

Here are some additional resources that may support you in managing your stress.
