Students can use the app to access five-minute video, audio and text programmes covering many topics, including managing distractions and uncertainty, maintaining motivation and positivity, staying connected, self-care and healthy habits. As well as gaining invaluable insights into the science behind our mental health and develop the seven skills of Mental Fitness: focus, confidence, motivation, connection, positivity, meaning and managing stress.
