Ulliance is proud to sponsor this documentary film created to start community conversations about anxiety, provide tools, resources & hope screens on

Wednesday, April 17 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm
at Madonna University (FREE TICKETS)

 

“When we learned about the opportunity to provide the screening of the documentary film Angst to the community and to be part of a movement to bring awareness to, and help eradicate, the stigma around anxiety, I couldn’t pass up the chance for Ulliance to support this great cause,” said Kent Sharkey, President and CEO of Ulliance.  “This is what we do every day for our clients’ employees and/or students—provide emotional well-being through our employee (EAP) and student assistance programs (SAP). What a great opportunity to partner with a long-time client that utilizes both our EAP and SAP services, Madonna University, to host the screening on their campus,” Sharkey added.

 “This powerful film shows how students really feel about anxiety.  It is a large part of daily life for persons of all ages, yet not everyone feels they can talk about it.  We are honored to host this documentary on our campus to open the conversation with students, staff, faculty, and our community about resources that can provide hope” said Christine Benson, Ph.D., Madonna University assistant vice president and dean of students.

 

There is a special cameo appearance in the film by Michael Phelps
where he talks openly about his struggles with anxiety.

Holiday Blues/Depression is a Thing...How Employers Can Help Their Employees During this Stressful Time of Year

Posted by Ulliance on Dec 12, 2018 9:22:35 AM

The holiday season has begun. The weather is changing, commercials promoting holiday deals have begun to take control of the airwaves, and families are preparing for their annual gatherings. Every year, people set high expectations for the holidays. Unfortunately, most of these expectations are never reached. This factor alone is one of the primary contributors to the phenomenon called holiday-induced depression—AKA the holiday blues. 

Holiday-induced depression can impact multiple facets of a person’s life, including their relationships with family members and even their employers. It can also affect how they view themselves and basic functions including their performance at work.

Holiday-induced depression shares its symptoms with major depression, except that it rears its ugly head during the holiday season. Some of the symptoms include, feelings of hopelessness or anger, losing interest in pleasurable activities, changes in appetite, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, withdrawal and even thoughts of suicide.
