Small team, big ideas

Preserving and protecting health

Our History

The name CALMS is an acronym for Community Action for Locally Managing Stress. CALMS is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status and is managed by a Board of Directors. CALMS was established at the end of 1994 as a result of a public meeting held at the Guildhall in our City. It emerged as a tentative response to an expressed community need for effective support for people suffering from stress and stress related illnesses as a result of the Troubles. During the 1990s and 2000s CALMS has grown and developed into an organisation which has a proactive and holistic approach to helping organisations, groups and individuals manage stress.
