About The Mental Wellness Society

The Mental Wellness Society is internationally uniting experts acting within the arena of mental wellness services and research that are united in making mental wellness a popular global movement. MWS promotes mental wellness as something more valuable and sustainable than the reactive/treatment-based mental health scenario. The Mental Wellness Society embraces awareness of Mind and Body.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a unique model where mental wellness is the foundation of success for persons, organizations, and societies to be and stay well.

We are presented with daily stresses and hurdles that challenge our ability to mentally function at our best. Overcoming those challenges is the vision of the Mental Wellness Society.
Our goal is to facilitate positive well-being rather than remediate disorders. Through sharing proven scientific methods and techniques, with well-designed education and training systems, we aim to provide the tools for mental wellness and optimal experiencing in all aspects of living to realize our full potential

❝ We have to realize that times of stress are also times that are signals for growth ❞

Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski

Mission Statement of The Mental Wellness Society

Advancing mental wellness to fully enjoy living through powerful and innovative mental wellness tools and processes championed by a global community of leading wellness experts and practitioners.

Wellness has been described as “a conscious, active, self-directed process of achieving full potential.”

The mission of the Mental Wellness Society is to identify, promote, and advance the acquisition of concepts and knowledge that can equip individuals with the means to achieve wellness in the psychological, behavioral, and interpersonal areas of their lives.

The Mental Wellness Society brings together individuals, organizations, and enterprises to create synergies and partnerships in its activities. We are a global society, inclusive and accessible to anyone with a desire to expand quality of life.
