The Stress Indicator and Health Planner Trainers Guidelines was developed to help individuals learn how to identify the main factors that lead to stress in their lives and areas of unhealthy living. It is designed so that trainers can help participants better understand how these internal influences direct their daily lives, and impact their personal and working relationships.

The SIHP was developed with eight key assumptions in mind.

- Most individuals do not know how distressing certain life events can be.
- Wellness is complex, with many factors contributing to it.
- Wellness is psychological as well as physical.
- Increased and unmanaged stress can break down wellness.
- Stress is created internally as well as externally.
- Behaviour has consequences: some positive and some negative.
- Wellness can be improved with a proper Health and Wellness plan.
