Royals Speak Up and Speak Out

Earlier this year, both the Royal princes made startling admissions about the stress they had suffered at the tragic loss of their mother Princess Diana.  This was an unprecedented step away from the ‘buttoned up’ dialogue traditionally expected from establishment figures.
Perhaps, we may look forward to a new culture of openness about stress and mental health issues, together with a renewed interest in stress management, as promoted by ISMA.

Many of our overseas branches will also be promoting International Stress Awareness Day on 1st November.  Having participation around the globe will really put the ‘I’ into ISMA.

Message from Carole Spiers, ISMA[UK] Chair, Founder 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.  This year we're aiming to do even better, as 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.'  [Business in the Community 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 wellbeing in the workplace.  

We will be looking at how employers are responding to mental health issues and hear from people about their experiences with mental health challenges. 

If you're a stress management professional, you'll know there's a fast-growing market for your services in all areas of the workplace. Why not cater to this need on International Stress Awareness Day, Wednesday 1st November 2017, by holding a special stress workshop or presentation in your own locality?  Make use of our  training pack.  Showcase your skills. Make valuable new business contacts, whether clients,  sponsors or benefactors.  And support ISMA's educational objectives - to reduce stress, while enhancing wellbeing and performance in the workplace.

Come on Board!
