In 2018, Professor Laurie Santos from Yale University introduced a new course, "Psychology and the Good Life", to address the growing mental health needs of students on
campus. It was an immediate success, attracting more than 1,200 undergraduate enrolees that first semester before it was transformed into the most popular online course in Yale's history. Now, Yale is offering the course for free to more than 550 low-income high school students across the United States, including cities like Atlanta, New York City, Los Angeles, and New Haven. The students will receive free college credits upon completion.
