Fika.Mental Fitness for Universities
We’re on a mission to mainstream Mental Fitness by bringing Emotional Education to students around the world.

Exercise keeps us physically fit, but what about our Mental Fitness?

  • Our confidence and focus?
  • Our motivation and positivity?
  • Our connection with others?
  • Our sense of meaning?
  • Our flexibility and adaptability to change?
  • Our ability to harness stress positively?
  • Our self-management?

Fika’s own research has shown that these skills are key components affecting student retention, attainment, employability and social inclusion on campus.

These skills need exercise too.
    Fika is inspired by a Scandinavian tradition for taking time out to focus on our emotions. Aligned with the 2019 NICE evidence standards for digital health technologies and built from a robust evidence-base by an expert team.
    Drawing on methods and theories spanning sports psychology and positive psychology as well as acceptance and commitment therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness to build Mental Fitness.
  • Feel resilient and able to bounce back
  • Be confident to step-up and take control
  • Communicate clearly and listen actively
  • Think creatively and solve problems
  • Take criticism and use it constructively
  • Adapt to changing circumstances
  • Create healthy, lasting relationships
  • Be focused and driven to succeed
  • Stay strong and clear-headed in a crisis
    The Fika platform is supported by our own primary research programme and designed to increase attainment, reduce attrition, improve the student experience and prevent mental health decline.
