Steve Joordens

UofT Professor of Psychology with a passion for preventive mental health and education

About

Initially trained as a Cognitive Psychologist with expertise on conscious versus unconscious influences on performance, Steve has more recently become a strong proponent of preventative mental health efforts. During the pandemic Steve created a free online course at Coursera.org entitled Understanding and Managing the Anxiety of COVID 19, a course that has over 180,000 registered students. That lead him to then created more specialized courses, one supporting Police Officers and another supporting Health Care Workers, providing each with a better understanding of the stressors associated with their chosen work, and giving them tips and strategies for managing their mental health. Since then Steve has become a common media commentator around preventative mental health, and has begun supporting both not for profits (The GenWell Initiative) and commercial entities (OOt Social) to bring mental health support to corporations, students, and the general public.
