ISMAUK is a registered charity with a multi-disciplinary professional membership that includes the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It exists to promote sound knowledge and best practice in the prevention and reduction of human stress. It sets professional standards for the benefit of individuals and organisations using the services of its members.
As an organisation, ISMAUK exists to advance the education of the public in the field of biological stress
The work of ISMAUK and its membership includes providing advice to members of the public and employers/organisations, and includes supporting the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in the delivery of their requirements for Stress Risk Assessment and the implementation of the HSE Management Standards.
Once a year, we publicise a stress theme with our popular National Stress Awareness Day, normally held annualy on the first Wednesday in November. As 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the event, we are celebrating it as International Stress Awareness Week [5th-9thNovember], with a whole five-day programme of stress-related workshops, presentations, fairs and stress helpline that will focus a special degree of media attention on ISMA and its members.
In order to support this high level of activity, in addition to income from its membership, we rely heavily on the goodwill and patronage of our many partners and sponsors.
