Healthy Minds Innovations: Tech to Help Measure and Teach Well-being Launched 09.2018
SCE is proud to be funding work of Healthy Minds Innovations, founded by world-renowned neuroscientest Dr. Richard Davidson who heads the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. HMI works to resolve the crisis of psychological well-being that is contributing to society’s most devastating problems.
Why We Invested
HMI’s Healthy Minds Program uses the Center for Healthy Minds‘ research insights and discoveries in designing and distributing technologically-based resources to measure and improve well-being. In doing so, they are developing practical tech tools to teach and measure the social and emotional skills SCE believes are vital, such as empathy, resilience, attention, compassion, creativity, and purpose. HMI’s tools include a mobile app as well as mobile-based training and webinars and science data and analytics.
Impact of SCE Support
We are happy to support the Healthy Minds Program over the next year of their work to teach skills that foster an organizational culture of engagement and success, supporting individuals in key sectors of our culture including the workplace, education, and healthcare.
