The project is a mental wellness program that strives to reduce stigma around mental health care and make it personal and accessible. The program is based on years of research and is designed to equip people with hands-on techniques that would help them relieve stress and anxiety, and live the life they want.
Program participants form groups and meet once a week to discuss their progress in a safe environment.
They’ve got peer leaders – program alumni themselves – and medical providers to help them set achievable goals pertinent to 5 domains of mental well-being: body, thoughts, feelings, actions and relationships.
The participants can track their progress and log the barriers they encounter. Hard work earns them points and rewards.
