Mental fitness

This Mental Health Awareness Week Lewisham College has partnered with Fika mental fitness to bring its students a tool to help them stay motivated, productive, focused and connected during this unusual time.

The Fika: Student Skills app is specifically designed to help combat the challenges of remote study and the mental health impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The app offers a dedicated series of programmes created to help students learn from expert psychologists, other students, academic and professional athletes. 

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.

Students can also take part in Fika’s daily community mental fitness workout, share experiences, learn from other members of the community and cheer each other on. 

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College said: “The wellbeing and safety of our staff and students will always come first, I’m delighted to be able to bring the Fika app to our college community and I encourage everyone to start using it to stay mentally fit, connected, motivated and focused during COVID-19 and beyond.”

Access to Fika: Student Skills Covid-19 package is free for all Lewisham College students and staff.
