life-long tools to support healthy minds.



Youth mental health is a major problem and the incidence of mental illness continues to rise1


1 in 4 secondary students and 1 in 7 primary school students experience a mental illness2 and 75% of all mental illness has its onset before the age of 24.3

This is why it is imperative we take preventive action to turn these statistics around.

Mindfulness is proven to lead to better attention, memory, regulation of emotions and self awareness.4,5,6 In turn, improvements in these areas can lead to reduced stress, anxiety and depression, better academic skills, social skills and self esteem.4,7
