What people are saying about Brain Thrive by 25:
I liked the simplicity. Dr. Amen makes this class approachable and practical. He taught me the tools to optimize my brain. Actually seeing the SPECT scans and the real negative effects of alcohol and drugs on the brain was a game changer. Take this course and put the plans in place ASAP.
"Powerful and eye-opening"
This is probably the most useful course I’ve taken because it covers so much about what I actually do everyday. And how I can be hurting or helping my overall brain function, which determines everything I do, think, and feel! That’s powerful and eye-opening. Thank you for this course Dr. Amen!
"Improved Study Skills"
I used to have to study for hours to prepare for routine quizzes and homework was always a 4-5 hour mission. Dr. Amen has taught me how to manage my time more efficiently and I am now able to stay organized throughout the semester so studying and homework is now a basic routine rather than a nightmare.
"This class is for everyone"
Easy to follow. If you’re a novice at brain health this class is the beginning of a journey. It really helped me raise my self-esteem and just think more positive now. Being aware of brain health is basically self-improvement.
