The Project

We’ve teamed up with Jennifer to expand our research in the mental health field, exploring how sensory interventions can enhance mental health care practices.

Through joint studies and shared experiences, we plan to pave the way for innovative approaches to wellbeing, fostering a deeper understanding of the impact sensory stimuli can have on mental health.

Together we’re committed to promoting a more inclusive and practical approach to mental healthcare that values the interplay between sensory and emotional wellbeing.
