Stress & Employment Status - The UL Spit Study

 

Are you unemployed? Employed temporarily or self-employed? Feeling stressed?

 

We know that chronic stress is associated with poor mental and physical health, as well as accelerated aging, but the picture in unemployed people is less clear and by measuring stress hormones we hope to be able to identity who is most vulnerable to poor health(e.g. long -term or short-term unemployed). Our study aims to look at different profiles of employment to try to understand  where and why differences occur and what the consequences of these differences could be. 

 

We have finished collecting our data for this study, thank you very much to all who took part. Stay tuned for updates on our results as they come in!

Building Resources in Caregivers

 

 

Do you want to help the Carers Association raise €1400?  Then why not take part in our brief writing study that may improve well-being in caregivers to help them raise the money.

 

This writing study is being conducted by the Centre for Social Issues Research at the University of Limerick in conjunction with Care Alliance Ireland. Participation is voluntary and very much appreciated.

 

We would ask as many carers as possible to take part in the online intervention. Please click on the link below to get more information, or you can contact charles.brand@ul.ie or Brenda.OConnell@ul.ie
