Rebecca addresses student and client needs by leveraging their strengths, building confidence, curing overwhelm and preventing burnout.

Amirah Gilani is an outstanding Braemar student who has participated as a Student Leader in numerous programs dedicated to student wellness. She is also the founder of SoulSparks, an interactive course for kids and teens that uses Positive Psychology techniques to encourage authenticity and self-esteem.

In our conversation with these two wellness advocates, we discussed a range of perspectives on how Mental Health may be preserved and improved. We touched on a number of related concepts, including “work/life balance”, stress management, toxic productivity, and the connection between personal interests and altruistic efforts.

Whether teen or adult, student or teacher, we all need help keeping ourselves well. Give your wellness efforts a boost.
