How come the hyperlinks in recalibrate don't open a new tab or browser window?

recalibrate was designed on the Open Berkeley platform, which does not allow this action for accessibility reasons. If you click on a link, it goes to that page in your current browser window.

For a workaround,* try this:
• on PC: hold down control when you click on the hyperlink (new tab will appear automatically).
• on MAC: hold down control when you click on the hyperlink (a list will appear, at top choose "Open Link in New Tab").
• on an iPhone: go to Settings, open your Safari Settings-GENERAL, choose "Open Links" and select "In New Tab."
• on an Android: hold down the link to right-click, and choose "Open in new tab."

As you discover and explore the resources on recalibrate, we suggest that you bookmark all of the links you find useful in a designated folder so you can return to them quickly.

*These solutions may vary depending on your actual browser preferences and settings.

recalibrate helped me find the wellness resource I was looking for! How can I tell my story?
