Welcome to the HAERT Program!
HAERT stands for Happiness, self-Awareness and Emotional Resilience Training.
- Would you like to feel confident and capable dealing with the inevitable challenges and changes of life?
- Do you want to learn how to treat stress as an awesome growth opportunity or a chance to heal and move forward?
- Did you know you can learn how to manage and learn from strong emotions, instead of avoiding them or getting overwhelmed?
Like other types of wellness, Mental Wellness is focused on prevention: understanding how your body works, learning new skills and developing healthy habits.
The HAERT Program is designed to teach you the social emotional skills you need in order to build a solid foundation for Mental Wellness.

Watch a Video
Videos are designed to teach you HAERT Mental Wellness skills and show you how and when to use them.
They explain how and why certain skills work in order to encourage you to use them.
Videos also introduce you to more effective ways of thinking and managing your behaviors.
Take a Quiz
End-of-Video Quizzes are designed to check your knowledge and understanding of the key points from the video.
There is no penalty for an incorrect response.
How you do on a Quiz does not affect your overall course points.
Write a Reflection
Reflections are designed to help you think about how to apply the HAERT Mental Wellness skills to your own life right now.
You can write your Reflections in a private journal or on loose sheets of paper that you collect in a binder or folder. You can even write them on sticky notes and put them up around your room as reminders of when and how to use skills.
Of course, Reflections are for your own growth and development.
Do them if you want to get the most out of the HAERT Program.
Do an Activity
Activities are designed to help you practice and apply skills to your life.
They include worksheets where you identify how and when you can use skills, guided exercises to help you practice or do when you need support and much more.
Take an Assessment
End-of-Module Assessments are designed to confirm that you did the activities to learn the material.
If you achieve at least 80% on each assessment, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement at the end of the course.
Now it’s up to you
Mental Wellness is a personal journey that will last your entire life.
As you change and experience new things, even as an adult, you will be challenged to apply your skills to increasingly difficult situations. And you will need to learn new skills for new situations.
This is the process of Building Mastery.
Some people manage to pick up some of the Mental Wellness skills in the HAERT Program on their own. Few people learn or even use all of them.
You are getting the privilege and opportunity to learn what most people are rarely taught.
It is entirely possible to skip through the HAERT Program, not watch or reflect on anything, guess your way through each assessment, get to the end and possibly have enough points to score a Certificate of Achievement.
AND if you want to live a happier, more fulfilling life, you have to do the work to learn and use the skills.
