Southwark College has partnered with Fika mental fitness to bring the Fika: Student Skills app this Mental Health Awareness Week to help students and staff stay motivated, productive, focused and connected during this unusual time.
This app is specifically designed to help combat the challenges of remote study and the mental health impact the Covid-19 pandemic has caused. It 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:
- 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.
Annette Cast, Southwark College Principal said: “We are committed to supporting our students at all times, and now more than ever, it’s critical that we support students’ mental health and wellbeing, so that everyone feels confident, connected and part of the Southwark College community.
“I encourage everyone to download the Fika app and start using this free tool to stay mentally fit, motivated, focused and connected.”
Access to Fika: Student Skills Covid-19 package is free for all Southwark College students and staff.
