Our work supports wellness among the women with disabilities and families with children with developmental disabilities impacted by our workshop partnership and among community members.

Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential. Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment. Wellness is positive and affirming.

Multi-Dimensional Model of Wellness:

While diverse theories exist to better understand human wellness, there is a general consensus among researchers that wellness is multi-dimensional. One model proposed by the National Wellness Institute offers six dimensions. These include occupational, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual dimensions, which they define as:
  1. "The occupational dimension recognizes personal satisfaction and enrichment in one’s life through work...
  2. The intellectual dimension recognizes one’s creative, stimulating mental activities...
  3. The emotional dimension recognizes awareness and acceptance of one’s feelings...
  4. The spiritual dimension recognizes our search for meaning and purpose in human existence."1

Wellness also involves social, environmental, and physical dimensions, which we address and evaluate among stakeholders through our social, environmental, and health-related impact.
