General Health Resources
Are health issues stressing you out?
Stress can be physical, mental, social, financial, or a combination. It is important to know, however, that stress is unavoidable, as we all experience stress in some form throughout our lives. Both acute and chronic stress can also worsen some health problems.The management of these health problems can then itself become an added stressor.
Chronic diseases like diabetes, arthritis, and cancer affect 45% of U.S. adults. Learn more about chronic diseases and management tips on the MSU Extension Health and Wellness Chronic Disease Page. If you need help caring for a loved one, please visit our section on grief, aging, and caregiving here (hyperlink to caregiving section of family stress page).
