Mental Fitness

We’re on a mission to mainstream Mental Fitness. To improve our core skills, reduce the risk of mental health decline and help us all to flourish.

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?

These key psychological variables are evidenced to directly affect workplace productivity, satisfaction, absenteeism, presenteeism and staff turnover. As well as student retention, attainment and employability.

These skills need exercise too.
    Fika is a customisable mental health improvement platform. Empowering organisations with assignable education courses evidenced to positively impact wellbeing and performance.
    Built from a robust evidence-base by an expert team. Fika draws 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

  • Adapt to changing circumstances

    The Fika platform is supported by our ongoing secondary evidence and primary research programme. Fika courses and exercises are proven to positively improve self-efficacy, positive affect, life satisfaction and reduce negative affect.
    By developing seven skills of mental fitness; confidence, positivity, focus, connection, meaning, motivation and stress management.
