"You aren’t the things that haunt you, you aren’t the pain you feel" Daniell Koepke
Mental health is one of the least discussed issues in academic circles. Statistics show that universities around New Zealand have slowly begun to employ measures to make sure the mental health and well-being of students is given higher priority. Employment of more counselors, psychiatrists, free of cost counselling sessions, international students’ groups/clubs and formation of other student groups within the campus have been some of the measures that leading universities within New Zealand have undertaken over the recent years.
In our attempt to reach out to those in the society who need help, UiRevolution created Mind Dojo. The app is specially designed for those who are on the lookout for some inspiration, assistance in times of anxiety or any forms of emotional distress. Mind Dojo makes sure that everyone finds a right channel to communicate their feelings.
Mind Dojo drew inspiration from Inspired Learning along with the advisory assistance of Dr. Mark Thorpe, a clinical psychologist and the head of the Department of Psychology at Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. Another figure who inspired the creation of Mind Dojo was Jasmine Murphy, senior psychologist at ProCare Health.
