Benefits for Teachers, Schools, and Students

  • An Adaptable Program

    The 15 MindUP lessons can be easily integrated into the wider school curriculum.

  • Improved School Culture and Climate

    Teachers and students report a calmer, kinder ethos across their school.

  • An Optimistic Classroom

    MindUP helps teachers create a classroom environment characterised by optimism, compassion and engagement, promoting resilience and fostering gratitude, empathy and connection to others.

  • An Evidence-Based Option for SEL

    More than 10 years of independent research, including four randomised control trials, has substantiated MindUP's impact on a variety of critical academic and social-emotional indicators.

“Once children realise that their minds matter, it makes a difference to how they’ll learn. It reinforces the enjoyment and impact of the experience of learning.”

Daniel J. Siegel, MD
