Revolutionaries fighting for
better emotional health

The National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Na h-Institiúidí Náisiúnta um Strus, Imní agus Storm

De nationella instituten för stress, ångest och depression

Who are NISAD?

We are the National Institutes for Stress, Anxiety and Depression.

We are a social enterprise with attitude, leading a global health revolution.

 

We believe that emotional support has to be available to:
Everyone Locally
and
at a price that is affordable for all.

The Institutes aren’t just about new ways to decrease the effects of stress, anxiety and depression – our real focus is on the way they make it much more difficult for any of us to change our behaviours.

Stuck in unhealthy habits, those of us with too much stress and anxiety in our lives – or with depression – find it almost impossible to improve our quality of life.

We are about innovation and affordability:
Thinking outside the box and creating programmes of care that everyone can access.

We are about sponsoring and supporting affordable clinics:
So that those programmes provide maximum benefit

We know exactly how to help

And that expertise, that ability to make change easy, incidentally, makes us many individuals’ and organisations’ first port-of-call – even for those not affected by stress, anxiety or depression.

Why?

We are therapists and biomedical scientists who create fun programmes for children and adults who need change; people who desperately need support.

That means our programmes and clinics are super-successful for many people who don’t have stress, anxiety or depression in their lives – but do want to be

happier,

have less chance of strokes,

heart disease

or other debilitating conditions,

be rid of bad or addictive habits

or

change something as simple as their eating or drinking behaviour so that they carry less body fat

or

feel better about themselves because they are bullied at work.

What we do

NISAD provides research,

online and face-to-face clinics,

as well as apps,

games and

programmes for adults and children.

Despite our name, we do not just specialise in stress, anxiety and depression, but in all conditions affected by our hormones and behaviours.

These include

anxiety
body fat management
challenges that affect children
challenges that affect young adults
challenges that affect people of 45 and over
challenges that affect people of 60 and over
challenges that affect people of 70 and over
family relationships
personal relationships
relationships at work
sleep
stress
stress in pregnancy
Type 2 diabetes

One part of NISAD focus on research into all these conditions with the help of our team of biomedical scientists, whilst the other part, known as ELK-Health, specialises in the clinics, apps and programmes. We do this with the support of our ever growing team of clinical therapists, who have the benefit of drawing from the ongoing research of NISAD.

What makes us different?

We bring together some of the most exciting research materials on these debilitating conditions and produce innovative programmes, apps and games backed by the very best clinical support.

We are professional clinicians and scientists mad about innovation and affordability:

We think outside the box and create programmes of care that everyone can access.

We are passionate about sponsoring affordable, specialist clinics, always available locally, that provide direct support to people on our programmes.

We won’t stop until everyone on the planet has access to the programmes and the supporting clinics.

Do enjoy following our progress. You could so easily be part of it – as a person looking for support, as a research participant or, simply, as a supporter.
