The Stress Industry's Own Charity
ISMAUK the International Stress Management Association exists to promote sound knowledge and best practice in stress control.

She is now one of their VP's and is the process of establishing ISMA (Middle East).
"Nobody could have been better equipped than Carole to chair the International Stress Management Association, the industry's own charity, from 2001-2002.
The job combined her deep understanding of stress, her flair for marketing, and her willingness to perform pro bono activity. Only Carole would have thought of launching a National Stress Awareness Day, still running successfully in its 10th years, in addition to many other triumphs of media exposure, including our sellout international conference at Warwick University.
It was our privilege to invite her to become one of our VP's, as well as a key contributor to our in-house publication Stress News." Jane Thomas, Past President, ISMA
