Stress Measurement Network

The Stress Measurement Network’s mission is to better understand the relationship between stress and health by improving the measurement of stress in research studies. The Network provides an array of stress measurement resources, organizes workshops, and brings together experts from around the world to debate, improve, and develop measures of stress. Together, we move the field from abstract and fragmented state to a cohesive science.
