With suicide and mental illness problems rising across the world, new and innovative processes are needed to stem this problem.
Here are two research studies that offer exciting solutions for community based mental wellbeing and suicide intervention using the
TUFMINDS program. Without any professional input using passively watch videos, significant improvements in depression, anxiety,
stress, mental illness stigma, optimism and mental resilience were observed. Additionally, suicide knowledge, skill and willingness
to assist a mentally distressed person were all improved dramatically. The potential benefits for mental health improvements and
suicide prevention in the community are enormous with this program that is available free as a smartphone app. There were also no
iatrogenic damage and the program was found to be acceptable and effective in workplaces and across the community.
