National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
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.
The National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression (“NISAD”) are 7 foundations,
National Institute for Changing Behaviours and Responses to Emotions (“NICBARE”)
National Institute for Better Understanding of Self-harming (“NIBUSH”)
National Institute for Research into Migrants’ Emotional Wellbeing (“NIRMEW”)
National Institute for Research into Stress and Pregnancy (“NIRSAP”)
National Institute for Research into Type 2 Symptom Alleviation (“TYPE 2 Alleviation”)
National Institute for Research into Domestic and Work Stress (NIRDAWS)
Which includes the Lund Centre for Entrepreneurial Motivation and Wellbeing
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:
Examples of the behaviours people have that often need our help are:
Being unhappy for no apparent reason
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
