Chopra Gloabla, the whole health company founded by Dr. Deepak Chopra, and The Social Change Fund, a foundation founded by NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul, that supports critical issues impacting the Black community, announced today a partnership to offer timely and important

self-care resources to educators across the U.S. as they adjust to the unprecedented position they’ve been assigned as frontline support for students around the country.

As part of the partnership, Chopra Global and SCF have teamed up with organizations that support teachers and professors in communities serving large minority populations including Teach For America, DonorsChoose and HBCU Heroes. Chopra Global will provide partner organizations with a one-year subscription to its new Meditation and Well-being App as well as additional self-care and well-being resources and programs including the wildly popular 21-Day Meditation Experiences with Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra. The Chopra Meditation and Well-Being App features a comprehensive library of simple self-care guidance and meditations for mind, body and spirit to help create and sustain a healthier life, with an emphasis on stress, energy, sleep, mood management, purpose, relationships and growth.

“Teachers have the essential role of helping to shape the minds of the next generation and our future leaders, and given the challenging year we’ve had, this partnership is more important than ever,” says Carmelo Anthony, NBA All-Star and SCF co-founder. “We need to ensure we are supporting the heroes of our underserved communities and equipping them with the tools they need to prioritize their own mental and emotional health.”

By providing tools, guidance and community, Chopra aims to advance a culture of well-being and make a healthy, peaceful and joyful life accessible to all. For more information, interact with the team on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
