What is wellness and what does it actually look like?

This wellness section is not a comprehensive study about wellness, instead the goal of this material is to emphasis the importance of wellness as a mental health resiliency strategy and to provide thoughts and ideas to assist in creating wellness as an organizational value. By encouraging wellness, employers can assist employees in leading happier, healthier more productive lives, ultimately making them better at the work they do.

There are eight forms of wellness identified by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI): emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual. We’ll touch on a few of these topics below. You can also read about occupational wellness as described in The Power of Purpose.
