A Message from IHEART during the Global Public Health Crisis
We have everything we need inside us – a message that is relevant now more than ever.We are most certainly living in the most extraordinary times. Our ways of operating in the world have been suddenly and jarringly disrupted. All of humanity is readjusting to new realities as the uncertainty of what the future holds envelops ourselves, our families, our schools, our communities and our society.
But while so much of the freedoms we have taken for granted are being severely restricted and curtailed, one thing has not changed: our innate resilience and mental wellbeing. Our minds remain free. Which means that our built-in capacity for experiencing our psychological health has not changed. No matter what is happening in the world around us. This is as true today as it was just a few short weeks ago.Our work at IHEART is to share this truth to our children and young people. And by extension, to their teachers and educators; their parents and carers; their community and youth leaders.So while we may have to curtail and adjust our in-person and classroom programmes for the foreseeable future, our commitment to sharing our core message remains unwavering. We are fortunate that with the aid of technology, we can reach, teach and share; we can still create impact and make a difference; we can continue to learn and explore together; we can expand our sense of community – virtually at least. And we can help support our children and others in need at this time.
Which is exactly what we are doing.
We have just launched a 2-day Virtual Conference: “Finding Emotional Freedom in Lockdown”. This idea, which did not even exist 5 days ago, has been put in motion to help us all navigate the unprecedented situation in which we find ourselves.
Additionally, in the coming days, weeks and months, we will be rolling a variety of further virtual learning and training opportunities that we hope will be hugely relevant, helpful and impactful. Please join us for these and in so doing, during these most extraordinary of times, you will become ever more connected to IHEART’s timeless message: We have everything we need inside us. Not just to get through this exceptional moment in history in which we find ourselves. But to learn, to grow and to thrive. As we reconnect with each other. And as we reconnect with the truth of our own wellbeing and resilience. Which is always available to each and every one of us. No matter what.
We have forgotten how resilient we are.
So have our children, our schools,
our universities and our workplaces.
We have a solution that is working.

What is IHEART?
IHEART – Innate Health Education and Resilience Training – is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping young people uncover their innate resilience and mental wellbeing.
We go to the source of the misunderstanding that often prevents our children from recognising their in-built wellbeing.
Our results are transformative – and sustainable – offering the missing piece in the mental health and wellbeing puzzle that society wishes to solve.
Our innovative and dynamic preventative educational programme has been tailor-made for working with young people and teachers in schools, youth settings, universities and educational institutions.
