MENTAL HEALTH IS HEALTH
We want to make the world a better place and we want to help you. Combining our deep knowledge of the world and vast experience with people around us, we know what it takes to create a stronger, healthier global community.
A lot of the problems in our society stem from a lack of mental health understanding.
Having a basic understanding of why people think and act the way they do; coincident with the act of thinking about your own actions and inner thoughts; examining what you do, say, think, feel and how it effects your life and the life of others is key to creating a stronger and healthier global community. Knowledge is power and we want to educate the world. The science of empathy is the future of health and wellness. The subtle, yet tangible, elements of empathy and compassion can make or break someone's life, family, career, or community. We have created numerous solutions that are guaranteed to get results on individual levels and on a global scale. We see the bigger picture and it starts with you.
THIS IS MENTAL HEALTH
Our mission is to bring awareness to the importance of emotional intelligence. We strive to constantly produce new articles, videos, and images highlighting different aspects of mental wellness. Emotional intelligence is an important, tangible aspect of human life. Everyone benefits from a mental health education. We envision motivational speaking, self-esteem classes for children and bullying awareness seminars in schools, eventually leading to prerequisite classes which will educate children on the fundamental principles of mental health.
SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO TOUGH PROBLEMS
The Ugly Duck currently runs coaching programs to help individuals improve their lives and achieve their goals. The Ugly Duck also runs a mentoring program, geared towards the adolescent population. In the coming months we will open yoga practices and fitness programs to help individuals and businesses re-calibrate their lives and realign with their core values.
THIS IS MORE THAN FITNESS COACHING. THIS IS MENTAL FITNESS COACHING.
Health and Wellness reach far beyond the confines of the gym walls. The Ugly Duck aims to bring awareness to the community and share this knowledge with the world. We envision outreach programs bringing relief to an overwhelmed community and solutions to the ailments that plague our society.
The Ugly Duck is going to take you outside. We will integrate our various fitness practices with the great outdoors. This will include retreats and camping trips designed to get you back to center. These programs will include intensive adventure-based self-development coaching combined with art, fitness, music, and yoga practices. By learning how to solve problems posed by the natural environment, participants will learn to recognize how they approach situations in everyday life. Application of the creative arts will encourage you to problem solve and allow you to look at various situations with a new perspective. Disconnecting from the concrete jungle and reconnecting to self is an opportunity that is not often given in these unique and unprecedented times.
Bringing forth knowledge of mental health will promote a more peaceful, cooperative, and sustainable community. It is our responsibility to create a stronger and healthier global community, for ourselves and for our children. This is a foundation that will integrate the union of our global family for generations to come.
