The Global Minds Collective has emerged as a dynamic, transformative, and empowering force in the global mental health landscape, championing the development, delivery, and evaluation of evidence-based programs that foster mindfulness, resilience, and overall well-being. At the heart of this organization lies The Mindfulness Ambassador Program (MAP), a unique evidence-based program that empowers individuals on their journey of self-discovery and connection. Below are some key research findings to support our work.

  • Immediate Benefits for Coping: Mindfulness interventions provide immediate benefits for individuals coping with stressors such as recent medical diagnoses, fostering resilience and well-being.
  • Organizational Support: Integration of mindfulness programming into organizational wellness initiatives supports employees' well-being, emphasizing the need for support and strategies to address well-being concerns effectively.
  • Empowerment through Self-Discovery: The MAP empowers individuals on their journey of self-discovery and connection, fostering mindfulness and resilience.
