The International Stress Management AssociationUK


The International Stress Management Association [ISMAUK] is a registered charity and the lead professional body for workplace and personal Stress Management, Well-being and Performance. We promote sound knowledge and best practice, nationally and internationally.


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 6 countries, ISMAUK has a global reach and hosts an annual highly popular Stress Management 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 International Stress Awareness Week (established in 1998 as National Stress Awareness Day), 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.

Among the many events related to stress management, International Stress Awareness Week includes the ISMAUK annual conference.


Why Not Keep in Touch?

As the leading professional body for those with an interest in stress management, mental health, wellbeing and workplace performance, ISMAUK would love to send you news and updates about what’s happening in the stress and wellbeing community and about regular events they hold through the year. You’ll find something of interest, whether you’re a practitioner, an HR professional or people manager, a company director or manager, or a specialist consultant.
