Origins and Mission
Emotional Health Essentials comes from the research lab of Dr. Anne Hsu, Associate Professor at Queen Mary, University of London. We combine the latest insights from neuroscience and psychology research into practical, actionable workplace training.
Emotional health is one of the most valuable and undersupported skills in society. It is a facet of mental health. The skills for emotional health involve developing self-awareness, appropriate expression of feelings, and a way of talking to self and others that provides a supportive, growth-minded approach to difficult situations. The techniques and practices that support emotional health are distinct from and complementary to other mental health strategies such as mindfulness, stress-reduction, sleep, and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. Emotional health is linked to greater resilience, stronger relationships, as well as improved collaboration, engagement, and performance.
Our aim is to support emotional health competency in individuals and organizations by helping people find ways to relate to themselves and others that are authentic, constructive, and supportive.
