The course was launched to teach specific techniques to increase self-awareness, noralise emotions and support well-being with the aim of enhancing social solidarity in unprecedented times like these. 

Participants that use the programme will be able to gain new skills and experiences when it comes to mental health - the course is structured around the philosophy of compassion and inclusiveness.

The course is currently available for free on the university’s online learning platform. It is open to anyone globally and is available to participants as young as 11 years-old. It takes around 60 minutes to compete. 

Many specialists in the field of mental health and academics from the MBRU had helped to create the programme.
