FASH is a unique educational framework designed to help individuals develop Emotional Intelligence (EQ) to prevent poor mental health and mitigate bouts of chronic stress.
By applying FASH’s simple methodology of its four-core primary feelings: Fear/Anger/Sadness/Happiness and exploring their dynamic relationship to language, individuals will gain a deep understanding into what drives their behaviour.
The model identifies the root cause of a mental health problem at an early stage in the emotional process, providing individuals with the tools to achieve long term well-being.
In addition to mastering EQ, the FASH framework teaches individuals to accurately record and monitor their mental well-being over a 90-day period. It tracks daily activities, monitors mood patterns, and collects vital data which facilitates the process of change - it’s like wearing an emotional Fitbit.
