What is the primary cause of stress, psychological?

The primary cause of stress is a result of life events and circumstances. Stress affects all people, men and women and those with and without a disability, but the magnitude of the impact is considerably smaller for the most vulnerable to stress. It is for this reason that the magnitude of the problem is important, not a single cause. Stress management methods differ for different people. We recommend that when individuals seek services from health care practitioners and self care, they be asked to consider the cause, intensity, and level of distress from what they perceive to be stress. A combination of the above, as well as other pertinent self care strategies, may be beneficial to the individual.
