Kasih Kit is a therapist-developed mental health kit that helps you manage stress and anxiety, and maintain wellness through a hands-on, guided approach.
Sure you know that mental health is important, but are you really dealing with your unappealing feelings? When you’re stressed out, it can be difficult to calm down even if you know several ways to do so. This isn’t a personal weakness; it’s just how your body works.
Kasih Kit helps you quickly calm down in the short term by engaging your senses, followed by your body and mind. It helps you manage stress in the long-term by helping you be aware of, identify, and process specific feelings as well as associated thoughts and triggers.

How it Works
Kasih Kit, developed by a registered therapist, uses a guided, three-step approach that embraces your humanity and works with your body, not against it:
- Engage your senses with curated sensory items to soothe and comfort yourself
- Engage your mind and body through words of affirmation to validate and motivate yourself, and somatic activities to relieve stress
- Explore your feelings by identifying and logging specific emotions, thoughts, and events
We know certain methods don’t work for everyone. That’s why Kasih Kit helps you build self-care routines that work for you.
Why the Three-step Process?
Whenever we experience stress, our sympathetic nervous system is activated. Because it's designed to keep us safe through a "fight, flight, or freeze" response, it makes even simple tasks difficult. This is why you can't just calm down on command. Getting frustrated with yourself just makes things worse!
When this happens, engaging your senses is often the most effective thing to do. That’s why Kasih Kit gives you items to engage your five major senses.
When you’ve calmed down a bit, now it’s possible to do stress-relieving activities such as meditation, yoga, walking, and grounding exercises. Don’t know what to do? We’ve included 25 Somatic Activities Cards for you to choose from.
No time for activities? Sometimes it’s helpful to just to hear some kind words of affirmation. That’s why Kasih Kit also contains 25 Words of Affirmation Cards. Here’s a few for you right now:
“If you can name it, you can tame it.” Even if you become a pro at managing stress, it’s critical to understand why you feel the way you do. That’s why, we’ve created a Feeling Wheel Magnet to help you identify what you’re specifically feeling. Starting from the six basic emotions in the middle of the wheel, identify more specific emotions on the outside. For example, are you just "stressed" or are you really feeling "disempowered" or "despair?" Then record, explore, and process these emotions later alone, with a partner, or with a mental health professional.
