Young Royals Speak up and Speak out!

Just recently, 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.

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.
