Message from Carole Spiers, ISMA[UK] Chair, Founder National Stress Awareness Day
"National Stress Awareness Day 2016 was one of our most successful yet, with 180,000,000 comments on Twitter and extensive media promotion for ISMA and next year we're aiming to do even better, with our special appeal to employers. This year, Stress Awareness Day goes international and I am very excited that countries from around the world will be participating.
Research shows that one in four people will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime. [BITC 2016]
Ending the stigma associated with mental health is an organisational imperative and ISMA [UK]'s focus for 2017 will be on mental health and the promotion of well-being in the workplace.
We will be looking at how employers are responding to mental health issues and hear from individual's experiences of mental health during the course of 2017.
As a stress management professional, you know there's a fast-growing market for your services in all areas of the workplace. So exploit it with a special stress workshop in your own locality, on International Stress Awareness Day, Wednesday 1st November 2017. Utilise our training pack. Showcase your skills. Make valuable new business contacts, either as clients, sponsors or benefactors. And support ISMA's educational objectives - to reduce stress, while enhancing wellbeing and workplace performance.
As founder of National Stress Awareness Day back in 1998, let's make it the best event yet.
Come on board and join the ISAD17 campaign."
