Sign in: Staff/Students
The University of Liverpool has partnered with mental fitness app Fika during COVID-19 to give all staff and students access to an additional tool to stay motivated, productive, focused and connected during this period of remote work and study.
In response to the global pandemic, Fika has created a dedicated series of programmes which give students the chance to learn from expert psychologists, other students, academics and professional athletes in five-minute video, audio and text programmes.
The programmes are specifically designed to help combat the challenges of remote study and the mental health impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Programmes and audio guides cover topics including:
Staff and students can gain invaluable insights into the science behind your mental health and develop the seven skills of Mental Fitness: focus, confidence, motivation, connection, positivity, meaning and managing stress.
Users can also take part in Fika’s daily community mental fitness workout where you can share your experiences, learn from other members of the community and cheer each other on.
Access to Fika’s COVID-19 package is FREE for all University of Liverpool students and staff.
