• UPLIFT YOURSELF

    LIFT UP THE WORLD

    One insane mental health awareness campaign.

  • UPLIFT IS...

    ... the first mindfulness-fueled, technology-driven mental health awareness campaign.

     

    We let you lift the world with your mind.

    RAISE AWARENESS

     

    Suicide is the #2 cause of death for college students and 30 percent of students report feeling "so depressed that it was difficult to function" during their four years.

     

    CONQUER STIGMA

     

    On campuses, stigma is the primary barrier for students utilizing the free or low-cost mental health services that most colleges offer.

     

    ENGAGE & INSPIRE

     

    Rather than preach to deaf ears, Project Uplift meets students where they are, using fun and wonder to facilitate organic student engagement.

    STRESS REDUCTION GAMIFIED

     

    When you lift yourself up inside, you lift up the world: by relaxing, you cause a 36-inch diameter globe to levitate up to 15-feet.

     

    BRAINWAVE SENSING TECHNOLOGY

     

    Using the latest consumer technology, Uplift reads your brainwaves to measure how relaxed you are.

     

    MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION

     

    Uplift draws from clinical research, providing effective stress-reduction techniques inspired by tried-and-true contemplative traditions.
