Founded in 1974 as the American Association for the Advancement of Tension Control (AAATC), the Association was renamed as the International Stress and Tension Control Society (ISTCS) in 1981 due to international interest. In 1984, the UK and French branches were formed and the organisation was renamed International Stress Management Association (ISMA) in 1989. With branches in 8 countries and members in many other countries, ISMA has a global reach.

Becoming a member of ISMAUK gives you the opportunity to be involved in an established membership organisation dedicated to excellence and best practice.


ISMAUK

ISMAUK has three main strands that run through the organisation and shape who we are and what we do:


1.  Professional Body

ISMAUK promotes sound knowledge in the prevention and reduction of human stress and is an advocate of best practice in the field of stress management. With branches in 8 countries, ISMA has a global reach and ISMAUK hosts a highly acclaimed national Stress Conference which attracts internationally recognised speakers from both Government and Industry.


2.  Membership Association

ISMAUK sets professional standards for the benefit of individuals and organisations using the services of its members. Promoting sound knowledge and best practice in the prevention and reduction of human stress, ISMAUK is the leading UK professional body representing a multi-disciplinary professional health and well-being membership.


3.  Charity

As a charity, ISMAUK disseminates and exchanges knowledge through initiatives such as National Stress Awareness Day (NSAD) which is organised and hosted by ISMAUK through its registered charity arm to advance the education of the public in the field of biological stress. NSAD is a firm fixture in the UK calendar which takes place on the first Wednesday of November.
