Wellbeing is a skill.

In fact, it is a collection of skills that can be taught to children.
Each skill forms a piece of an umbrella that protects us from the rain of life.

This Month’s Skill


Doing good is not only beneficial for the person on the receiving end and those who witness the kind action, but also for the givers of kindness. When we are kind and intentionally perform acts of kindness we get a boost in our own wellbeing and happiness. It feels good to help others and it helps us focus on the positive things in our lives. It’s a win-win!

The Umbrella Project Mental Health Awards & Scholarships

We’re excited to launch the first-ever Umbrella Project Mental Health Awards & Scholarships. Applications open Monday, March 2, 2020. 

For Teachers

Empower your students to anticipate and prepare for life’s rainy days

The Umbrella Project is a teacher-led curriculum and school based program created to help teachers, students and parents reframe our perception of challenges and strengthen the skills of well-being to positively cope with the everyday stresses of life.

For You

Lead by example to inspire others to use their umbrellas.

Everyone has a unique umbrella shaped by the experiences of life. Some are big. Some are small. Others have holes, or have been forgotten at home. Below is an assessment you can use to better understand your umbrella and uncover opportunities to proactively develop your coping skills.
