"Stress can have a very negative impact on a person's physical health and is associated with a variety of psychiatric, psychological and social conditions including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, increased risk of developing heart disease, chronic conditions, and premature death. Stress management includes various treatments ranging from psychotherapy and relaxation techniques to medications.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is a wide variety of definitions for stress. In our study, we used the psychoanalytic definition stressing the fact that stress is a response to a situation. This definition could be summarized into the following: a reaction to a threat. The situation that gives birth to the reaction can in many cases be a situation that requires a choice (for example, a situation that would trigger a person in distress to run away). For example, an unstable home or unemployment could be a situation that demands a threat of danger. A man is stressed if he fears his life when his wife falls ill. An adolescent is stressed if he needs to go to the doctor when he contracts, for example, a common flu." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Stressors (psychological) are common in the normal life of our society, and most stressors have a natural tendency to dissipate on their own. Stress has positive adaptive functions because it helps us to cope with the demands on our nervous system, yet they are not always helpful. As such, the primary psychological intervention (stress management) is to help people to deal effectively with stressors in their life, so that they can be in a state of optimal adjustment." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Stress comes in many different forms, and therefore there are many different causes. More work needs to be done on the biological mechanisms, but these are likely to be involved. In some individuals, stress is a cause of heart disease. More people in developing countries might die of heart disease, because of their stressful lifestyles." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"around 50-60,000,000 people are suffering from stress (psychology) each year in the United States. More than 80 percent of the population suffers from at least one type of stress. Among all psychiatric diagnoses, stress (psychology) has been ranked as the most frequent (about 60).thedevelopment of the DSM-IV criteria for ADHD has provided an opportunity to identify and treat the symptoms associated with depression, generalized anxiety, and conduct disorder, and to introduce new and improved treatments for these diagnoses." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The patient's subjective appraisal of stress is related to stress, as shown by changes in the patient's attitude toward the events in the patient's lives, as well as by changes in the patient's personality characteristics." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Ads plus worked well for people that were in the short-term treatment of stress-related symptoms. When these symptoms had not resolved after 2–3 weeks, people generally moved on to a better treatment plan. This is important, since it helps people keep them out of the emergency room and stay in the game of not having to worry about a health issue for the time being. There were no harms in having the ads in the first place." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Although this study had several limitations, these results suggest that ads alone fail to improve health, happiness or social support in this population. Results also imply that patients with ads in the United States are not well-advised, and that clinicians should be careful about prescribing ads, particularly if patients have more immediate needs such as those related to pregnancy, divorce and other changes in relationships." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"We conclude that ads plus are well liked in Australia due to its effective communications and its ability to deliver specific messages. Ads plus can also be used as a tool to deliver a range of social messages." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"Ad campaigns can have an effect on health care use. Ad campaigns in particular will impact those who spend large amounts of time in a health care facility, whereas a placebo effect must be taken into account in those who do not spend a large amount of time in a health care facility." - Anonymous Online Contributor
