An app-based mental health course
Calm Amidst Chaos: How to Cope with Uncertainty
During the second half of 2020, Amanda partnered with the Indonesian company, Agate, to create a self-guided mental health course housed in their Levio app. While this is not intended to be a substitute for psychotherapy, the collaborators hope this FREE course can offer supplemental support for coping with stress and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Free Self-Care Plan
"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation..."
