Focus Areas are the opinionated topics we want our members to focus on to improve their well-being.


Values are the guiding principles that shape our behavior and inform our decision-making process. They represent our beliefs or ideals that we hold dear and are deeply committed to. Values help us define who we are as individuals and what we stand for. This path will help you identify your values, reflect on what is most important to you, and give you tools to live in alignment with them, guiding your life's journey.


Foundations is the bedrock for your mental wellness journey. Building a strong foundation for mental health and personal growth takes time and effort, but it is a worthwhile investment in yourself. The Foundations Focus Area will dive in and asses the many layers that make up an individual, ultimately providing you with a starting point to build upon.


Emotions are a natural part of life and everyone experiences them. Yet, at times, they can become too much to handle and difficult to control. It's important to remember that emotions are not inherently good or bad; they are simply messages that our minds and bodies are sending us. In this Focus Area, you will learn about the importance of acknowledging and accepting your emotions as a first step towards managing them in healthy ways.


Communication is the foundation upon which we build our relationships, both personal and professional. But what happens when communication breaks down? Misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and even conflict can arise when we fail to communicate effectively. In this Focus Area, we'll explore the importance of communication in our personal growth and mental health journey, and provide practical steps to improve your communication skills.


Making decisions can be a challenging process that we face every day. Some choices may seem easy, while others can leave us feeling uncertain and overwhelmed. However, there are ways to approach decision-making that can help reduce stress and increase the likelihood of making a choice you feel confident in. In this Focus Area, we’ll help guide you through some effective strategies for making confident decisions.

Cognitive skills

Cognitive skills refer to the mental processes that enable us to obtain and use knowledge effectively. These abilities include attention, memory, perception, and problem-solving, and are essential to our everyday lives. Our capacity to learn, communicate, and engage with the world is greatly influenced by these skills. It's important to note that cognitive skills can be improved through practice and training, which is precisely what we'll be doing in this Focus Area.


Acceptance is the practice of embracing our thoughts, emotions, and experiences without judgment or resistance. It's an important process that allows us to hold space for our experiences, enabling us to respond with compassion and clarity. This approach can lead to better emotional regulation, self-awareness, and overall well-being. In this Focus Area, we’ll explore tools that can be developed and refined over time, despite the challenge of applying it in difficult situations or emotions.


Adaptability is a crucial skill for personal growth and success, requiring flexibility, willingness to learn, and embracing challenges as opportunities. It is difficult, but essential for navigating uncertainties and requires you to step out of your comfort zone and embrace new experiences. In this Focus Area, you will explore new skills, gain new perspectives, and broaden your horizon to build resilience.
