Your psychological system is already immune.

iheart’s core message is that all of the above – and much more – is not merely possible; it is unconditionally available to us all. This event will help you and your family find out how you can unlock your innate resilience and experience your wellbeing, no matter what – even during a global pandemic.

First iheart academic paper

iheart is delighted to announce the publication of an academic paper in the prestigious Journal of Public Mental Health. “Evaluation of the iheart mental health education programme on resilience and wellbeing of UK secondary school adolescents” was co-authored by leading academics Professors Anthony Kessel and Thomas Kelley, and Doctors Andrew Solomon and Rosalyn Collings, with assistance and input from Charlotte Monnickendam and Brian Rubenstein.

The purpose of this paper is to present the findings of a preliminary study conducted two years ago based on the iheart Programme for Young People to a cohort of secondary school pupils from across several schools in the UK. The study observed that taken together, the quantitative and qualitative results are highly encouraging, highlighting how key mental wellbeing indicators such as impulse control and emotional resilience provided positive findings. The paper concluded that “iheart may be a promising new intervention offering a step change in mental health education for improving resilience, mental wellbeing and the ability for participants to navigate psychological challenges.”

It is our hope that this paper will lead to further studies which provide more precise outcomes and in-depth analysis of the efficacy of iheart’s work with young people, which has evolved significantly since this initial study was conducted. Developing partnerships with leading research institutions such as The Anna Freud Centre and CORC (Child Outcomes Research Consortium) demonstrate our significant commitment to continue to build a meaningful, sustainable evidence base for our work.
