International Stress Awareness Week

'RESILIENCE - the Power to Succeed!'

Carole Spiers

Hear All About it From Carole Spiers, ISMA[UK] Chair, Founder National Stress Awareness Day

"As ISMA celebrated Stress Awareness Day's 20th anniversary in 2018, I am delighted that our decision to devote the whole week (5th - 9th November) for the very first time, was met with resounding success. The week was celebrated not only in the UK but throughout the world thereby confirming ISMA's role in identifying and dealing with stressors for both home and the workplace. 

Stress Awareness Week included a Stress Fair in London; an all-day Global Online Stress Summit hosted by ISMA Belgium; a Stress Survey addressing technology and an all-day Online Stress Chat Service operated by ISMA UK stress consultants.

The Week came to an end with our annual conference taking place in central London where over 130 participants listened to an international team of thought leaders. The day included presentations, panel discussions and workshops leaving delegates feeling motivated and fully involved throughout the day.

Both Broadcast and social media were very active throughout the week and interest spiking on National Stress Awareness Day itself which is recognised on the first Wednesday in November every year. I am delighted that BCC world covered the story with their international audience.

Our theme for 2019 is RESILIENCE and work is already under way from the Steering Committee to make sure that 2019 achieves an even greater reach than ever before. 


Ending stigma

The challenges of both stress and mental health are issues of considerable importance for many of us. So, ending the stigma associated with stress and mental health is an organisational imperative. ISMA's focus is to continue to ensure that these issues remain high on the national adgenda with active promotion of wellbeing in the workplace. 

So, come on Board for 2019! Get yourself involved in the campaign. We would love you to join us. 

Let's make 2019 the best year ever for beating stress!."

Carole Spiers, Founder, International Stress Awareness Week, Chair ISMAUK.
