The University of Liverpool has partnered with mental fitness app Fika during COVID-19 to give all 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:
You 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.
Students 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.
COVID-19 is having an impact on everyone’s daily lives. By following the guidelines on social distancing and staying at home you’re helping to protect yourself, family, NHS, and community, but a consequence might be that you feel isolated, worried, and anxious, or you could be concerned about your health, or the health of others.
In these uncertain times it’s important to take care of your mind as well as your body, and to make sure you get any support that you need.
If you need support please contact our Student Services. The team are providing enhanced support through phone and email between 9am and 5pm each day. Click here for contact details.
