mindhamok, the world of student wellbeing…
mindhamok are here for students, wellbeing is about mental, physical and social health, that’s why mindhamok has all of the bases covered. We have been supporting Study Abroad students across the UK and Europe since 2017, we now support UK university students and are expanding who we help and how we do it. Our approach is centred around prevention and a pro-active approach to one’s own mental health and wellbeing. We know that students are now more upfront about their own and others wellness, the pandemic has only increased this awareness and the importance of addressing it. That’s why we have developed ‘on-demand’ 24-7 assistance tools, a therapist network, helplines, knowledge-base as well as events to be with every student on their journey.
Anxiety and depression are increasing and can hamper a student’s experience in what is supposed to be the ‘years of your life’. Unchecked these can lead to further disruption to academics, friendships, family relationships and a person’s relationship with themselves.
Having access to mindhamok gives students the tools to help them through their journey and on to the rest of their lives.
mindhamok began as Mondo Equilibrio in Rome in 2017, an Italian company created by Phil Georgiou. Mondo Equilibrio quickly became known as the go-to place for American students to access counselling support whilst studying abroad through use of it’s confidential English-speaking 24/7 helpline. Continued growth led to expansion in Florence, Lugano, Paris, Madrid and London adding further specialist student helplines, critical incident management services, consultancy and training to university staff and faculty, whilst developing hand-picked therapist networks in each city. In 2020 the company moved to the UK and launched as mindhamok.
mindhamok applies a greater emphasis on prevention and sits on a set of solutions to help the entire university ecosystem with a ‘Student First’ approach. mindhamok supports thousands of students across Europe and the UK, whether home students studying in their own city, international students or on study-abroad programs. mindhamok reduces the stress that students experience and gets them the help they need without the disruptive wait times that can cause further pain to students, parents and staff. We serve the students directly via subscriptions or through their university or organisation.

Tiziana graduated in Foreign Languages and speaks four. Tiziana began her working life in investment banking where she worked for a decade as a director in electronic trading. Although she had never considered ‘numbers’ to be her strength, this early career experience brought her to the realisation that in life if you commit to the task, you can achieve anything. With this in mind, she chose to follow her heart, leaving banking to create a number of her own businesses. Developing mindhamok enables Tiziana to focus her experience on a social venture that favours prevention and empowers students to take care of their wellbeing
