In working life of today, people experience high levels of stress and often react strongly to different stressors. If one is exposed to high stress levels for a long time, this may eventually lead to sickness and absence from work. Web based systems are available today for people who suffer from stress. However, these web based systems need to be further explored in order to meet different ‘on demand needs’ of people in stress. In order to offer people in stress a broad palette of help and support, different forms of online help from both health experts, peers and published material and exercise programs need to be well integrated in the web based system. A system that offers multiple help online can also let the users experience complemented advice and ideas regarding their stress concerns. The web based stress management system proposed in this paper outlines a combination of online interactions between health experts and people in stress, community conversations among peers and published information and exercises. The paper also introduces a set of design principles to be used to guide the development of integrated online help for stress management.
