Agneta Johansson, the Director of Wellbeing at Jamma International, has a vision to design and deliver Life Skills programmes to build capacity and resilience in both organisations and individuals.
Our initial project is 'The Brain, How it Creates our Reality and Our Behaviour', exploring how we become more resilient in every day life.
We know how to take care of our body but we know very little about how our brain works. If you understand how the brain works, you have the ability to change your behaviour.
The first project in Life Skills being developed will focus on the brain, how it creates our reality and affects our behaviour. Not in a detailed scientific way, but in a way that can help us understand how little the brain has changed since cave men and how this can cause a lot of suffering in today's world.
Our project will be a new approach to mental health. This knowledge about brain function and some basic skills on managing our tricky brain will be a foundation to manage our life in a more constructive day-to-day way.
It is in the brain that our lives are played out and where all our perception from the world is coming from. It is therefore very important to understand how the brain works, what is causing our mental struggle and how to take control.
