We are the

National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression.

We operate globally – either through the internet or with physical clinics and workshops, but are centred on Lund, in Sweden.

We think people who need help in order to change what they do and don’t do are precious and just need gentle, strong, reliable support.

We are a friendly, welcoming, non-governmental organisation based in India and Sweden with research and development centres in Ireland and the UK.

The National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression (“NISAD”) are 7 foundations,

associations and research centres working to a common goal. That goal is enabling everyone to access emotional healthcare.

We don’t just research and create new ways to support people with too much stress, anxiety, or depression.

We know (because we see it every day) that being susceptible to these conditions means having difficulty changing behaviours which, often, are a major cause of them.

So what we are is:

“Experts at helping people change the behaviours they have that make them less well than they should be.”

Examples of the behaviours people have that often need our help are:

 

Being unhappy for no apparent reason

Feeling isolated

Eating more than we think we should

Drinking more than we think we should

Worrying more than we think we should

Feeling that we can’t cope

Feeling overwhelmed
