About Psych. School.

Now, more than ever in our lifetime, we understand that prevention is better than cure. In the field of Mental Health, prevention is education/education is prevention - even for those of us who feel well. Psych.School is about explicit learning for the heart, before it becomes unwell.


Psych.School is part of a proactive mental health movement; championing education in the place of inaction. Psych.School aims to improve community mental health by offering information about psychological practices for maintaining good mental health instead of treating poor mental health.

We are about lessons, not therapy. We believe that the more people who understand psychological concepts and speak the psychological language – the better all of our mental health will become. 

We are a drop in the ocean, but as you and others join our cause, we will become a tide.
