In this program students learn how their emotional health affects their physical health and vice-versa. The program describes how many physical ailments have a mental component and are precipitated by factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression. Researchers and clinicians talk about how improvements in psychological functioning can mitigate and even prevent the symptoms of many diseases.

Young people profiled in the program describe how mindfulness techniques such as meditation and yoga have helped them deal with emotional problems. They also talk about how physical exercise can help lift mood, sharpen thinking, and ease stress. One young woman describes how exercise helped her deal with depression.

Viewers come away with the message that emotional health promotes physical health, and a healthy body leads to a healthier, happier mind.

In addition to the student video, the DVD includes a separate 7-minute video on meditation featuring Dr. Peter Montminy, a clinical psychologist and mindfulness teacher.
