Welcome

Stress is everywhere, and we can’t avoid it. Mental health experts are working hard to understand it better so we can manage it effectively. The American Institute of Stress is focused on explaining how stress affects our bodies and minds. If we understand stress better, we can use its positive aspects to our advantage.

We want to improve the overall quality of life by teaching people to handle stress in healthier ways. Let’s face it: life doesn’t always go as planned, but we can learn to cope by recognizing fear, eating well, and finding humor in tough situations. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s time to update our thinking and find better ways to deal with stress. The American Institute of Stress is here to guide you through it.

Our Mission

The mission of The American Institute of Stress is to improve the community’s health through education about how we naturally respond to internal and external stressors, and how to manage our stressors rather than allowing them to manage us. Our desired outcome is to master our stress in ways that lead to more peaceful, productive, and happier lives by providing evidence-based resources and tools that prevent disease and improve mental wellness.
