Keyano to offer evidence-based mindfulness training to college community

March 2, 2017

Keyano College has announced that it is offering online mindfulness training to all faculty, staff, and students in an effort to support mental health, improve resilience, and increase performance. Next Monday, 5000 members of the Keyano community will be invited to start the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge, a program that has been used at the Mental Health Commission of Canada, UBC, WestJet, Coca-Cola, and Harvard Law School. A Keyano release states that the program has been shown by the Sauder School of Business to lower stress, increase resilience, improve teamwork, and strengthen leadership skills. “It’s a dynamic, face-paced environment at Keyano College so we want to support our community as much as possible, especially as we approach the one year anniversary of the fire,” said Debbie O’Halloran, Keyano Chair, Counselling & Accessibility Services.
