More About Delaware Changing Lives

For many, being mindful is an everyday practice, and can have a positive impact on individuals whether they are suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression or simply are feeling overwhelmed. It is a learned skill that can help set people of any age up for success in their personal and business life. Through this collaboration of TAPP Network and Gift Global, Delaware will be leading the charge in bringing mindfulness to the community.

Delaware Changing Lives is a coalition created by GIFT to serve as a model for social innovation and change utilizing mindfulness technologies. They do this by training professionals on how to reduce their stress and burnout levels, and then share mindfulness with the people that they serve. For now, the organization is focused on delivering this training to professionals in schools, mental health providers/agencies, veterans, and non-profit agencies.
