The American Institute of Stress - 2023 Campaign

Stressed? If Life Were Easy They Would Have Asked for Volunteers.

Stress is ubiquitous and follows us everywhere. The American Institute of Stress was founded in 1978 by Hans Selye, MD, PhD, founder of the stress theory to help practitioners, scientists, and the general public understand and manage stress, so stress doesn't manage us.

How can you help?

Your tax-deductible gift allows us to continue helping you along with Service Members, veterans, first responders, and civilians navigate stressful situations to have a happier, more rewarding life. Every dollar is greatly appreciated.
