Danielle Einstein Biography
Danielle works with schools to develop programs to enhance emotional health, manage smart technology use and prevent anxiety and depression. She has collaborated on the development of many school based programs, three internet programs (Chilled Plus, Climate Social Anxiety program) and now the Chilled and Considerate Programs.
Danielle leads research with schools across Australia to evaluate the impact of the programs on wellbeing. The latest program is being run in Australia, Hong Kong and the UK to educate the community on the psychological factors which undermine mental health in the wake of COVID 19. One student at the Kings school has commented on how useful these learning’s are and how he uses the tools within the program to stop worrying and calm himself both during the school day and at night when he goes to sleep.
