Welcome To Stress Awareness Month–April 1-30, 2017

Hello and welcome to the Official Website for Stress Awareness Month 2017.  Stress Awareness Month has been held every April, since 1992.

During this annual thirty day period, health care professionals and health promotion experts across the country will join forces to increase public awareness about both the causes and cures for our modern stress epidemic.

Sponsored by The Health Resource Network (HRN), a non-profit health education organization, Stress Awareness Month is a national, cooperative effort to inform people about the dangers of stress, successful coping strategies, and harmful misconceptions about stress that are prevalent in our society.

“Even though we’ve learned a lot about stress in the past twenty years,”says Dr. Morton C. Orman, M.D., Founder and Director of HRN, “we’ve got a long way to go. New information is now available that could help millions of Americans eliminate their suffering.”

Dr. Orman has invited leading health care organizations across the countryto develop and disseminate helpful educational materials and other information about stress during the month of April. He is also encouraging stress experts and other health care leaders to conduct public forums, discussion groups,and other informative community events.

For more details about the special events and other stress relief resources being made available by Dr. Orman during the month of April, 2017, please click on the additional tabs at the top of this page.

    I was hoping to touch base with someone in your organization that will be promoting the activities around this year’s awareness month? Is there a PR/marketing contact that you can refer me to? Thanks!

      Any organization or health care provider can choose to participate in raising awarenss about stress as they see fit. That’s why we don’t give much specific guidance.
