We are thrilled to share the exciting news that Agneta, our Director of Mental Wellbeing at Jamma, has recently released her debut book titled "Brain Smart."

Agneta's passion is to design life skills programmes to build capacity and resilience in people where everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, can learn to improve their wellbeing. 

"Brain Smart" delves into the inner workings of the brain, offering invaluable insights and practical strategies to enhance mental wellbeing. Unlike traditional therapy approaches, this book serves as an educational tool, empowering readers to understand how their brain shapes thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. This 'Brain Smart' programme is being used by mental health charities and has become part of some school's curricula. It is also being developed for prisons.

Available on Kindle or as a paperback via Amazon, "Brain Smart" provides straightforward exercises and clear explanations, making it accessible to individuals from all walks of life.

so embark on a journey of self-discovery and mental empowerment with "Brain Smart" today. Your feedback is invaluable to us, so please consider leaving a review after reading!

Mental Health
Awareness Week

News & Insights

This week is 2021's Mental Health Awareness Week, with connecting to nature as the theme.

"Nature is so central to our psychological and emotional health, that it’s almost impossible to realise good mental health for all without a greater connection to the natural world. For most of human history, we lived as part of nature. It is only in the last five generations that so many of us have lived and worked in a context that is largely separated from nature. And it is only since a 1960s study in the US found that patients who were treated in hospitals with a view of nature recovered faster, that science has started to unpack the extraordinary health benefits." - Mental Health Foundation

Here at Jamma, we clearly see the link between the wellbeing of people and the wellbeing of our planet. We have supported and worked in many partnerships with mental wellbeing organisations to ensure people have the rights to secure their own mental and physical wellbeing.
