A brief account of the life of a stress working party in a learning disabilities unit, and some of the decisions which it made. Although the working party fulfilled its goals and achieved a marked level of success, including an EAP service, a number of problems remain. Conversations were held with the remaining members of the working party after the project had been completed, as well as some of the members of the executive board. As a result it was felt that structural problems of the organization were not tackled adequately by the working party, and the successes and failures of the group reflected the organization and culture of the learning disabilities unit itself.
