Celebrating Membership of ISMA
Another badge, another reason to confirm our commitment to workplace and personal stress management, wellbeing and performance. International Stress Management Association (ISMAUK) is a registered charity and the lead professional body who promote sound knowledge and best practice, nationally and internationally.
As a Member if ISMA, Moonstir's Director, Morag Ormiston, has Stress on her mind. Mental health problems have never been more important than now, and the challenges they present never more acute than the Covid-19 pandemic. We now enter a Winter period of further restrictions combined with the cold weather and dark nights. With ongoing concerns regarding employment, uncertainty over working regimes, childcare and our health, now more than ever we need to act. Is it any wonder we see increased feelings of depression and anxiety? But how do we cope? As Business owners strive for survival, they need themselves and their workforce to be fit and well.
NHS services are focusing on those in real need. Third sector organisations are struggling to meet demands too. Employers have a duty of care to support their employees but often SMEs don't know where to start.
Moonstir have a growing team of experts with the knowledge and empathy to work with both management and employees during this difficult period. We live and thrive on providing care and support to people in our locality. We will be offering group support sessions to employees. We are also planning more focused events for managers.
Keep an eye out for the launch of our 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 campaign soon.
