New Science of Well Being Course for Teens

A recent survey found that 37% of teens say they have poor mental health. The Science of Well-being for Teens is a new online class created specifically for middle and high school students and will teach them strategies they can use to reduce stress and feel happier. And it’s totally free!

The six-week course brings together the best insights from Dr. Laurie Santos’ popular Yale course Psychology and the Good Life.

In this course, you will explore what the field of psychology teaches us about how to be happier, how to feel less stressed, and how to thrive in middle and high school and beyond. The lessons along with short weekly ‘happiness homework’ assignments will ultimately prepare you to put these scientific findings into practice. The ultimate goal is for you to feel better and build healthier habits. Parents, teachers, and other professionals supporting teenagers may also find the course beneficial.
