Smiling Mind is a web and app-based program encouraging users of all ages to use meditation to improve their mental health and general wellbeing. It has been developed by psychologists and educators to help bring balance to people’s lives. The program can be used in classrooms with young children, or at home by parents. This package also features education resources for teachers aiming to incorporate Smiling Mind practices into their school environment.

Ideas for using this resource

Just as we promote eating well and keeping fit for a healthy life, meditation is about mental health and looking after the mind. Young people deal with the pressure, stress and challenges of daily life. This program can help with sleep, wellbeing, managing emotions, concentration and school behaviour including dealing with bullying.

Smiling Mind programs and the discussions they promote also assist with:

  • stress management
  • increased resilience
  • increased creativity
  •  better decision making
  • a sense of calm, clarity and contentment
