MindMasters (2000)

MindMasters (MM) is an evidence-informed, mental health promotion resource. It helps children to develop social and emotional skills through relaxation, positive thinking and mindfulness. It includes short, age-appropriate activities to help children develop these skills that will last a lifetime.

Individuals and organizations are welcome to download these resources for their own use.

Released in 2000, MM was developed by Dr. Terry Orlick, world leader in sports psychology and founder of the Zone of Excellence. Dr. Orlick generously provided this resource to the Child and Youth Health Network of Eastern Ontario (CYHNEO) and CHEO to share with you.

The CYHNEO and CHEO have recently updated MM. The latest version is MindMasters 2.
