On top of everthing - about adolescents, stress and mental health

A film about adolescents in Aarhus, Denmark, participating in an 8-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. We learn how they perceive stress in their lives and how they feel the effects of practicing mindfulness. 

Mindful Medicine

This film follows a course in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Participants have different reasons for being there. We follow three people – Rikke, David and Marlene, and what they discover about themselves.

Healthy Habits of Mind

This film was recorded in a kindergarten in Berkeley, USA, where the teacher Renee Harris, used mindfulness tools. One of the results was that the children found it easier to concentrate and show empathy.

In the film, brain researcher Richard Davidson explains how happiness and wellbeing is an ability that needs training - and how starting early in life can help prevent problems later on.
