Impact of changing social structures on stress and quality of life: individual and social perspectives

Objective

The last 20 years has seen major structural changes in society. These changes have occurred due to technological advancement, demographic developments, and social and economic changes. The changes have affected working patterns, social networks, and family structures. In addition to this, levels of stress have increased in society. The present project will study whether the structural changes in society have had an affect on increased stress levels. The project will further assess the difficulties individuals have in trying to return to work after experiencing stress-related psychological problems. This will be commensurate with the call, which addresses the effect of structural changes and technological developments on societal and individual well-being.
