Amidst the backdrop of a global mental health crisis, the dominant focus is on the breadth and depth of people's mental health. Interventions target ways to reduce suffering from negative patterns and symptoms such as stress, anxiety, and depression. However, this focus is an incomplete picture of our power for health and wellbeing. Innovative programs that connect individuals to their innate health—capacity for creativity, wisdom, and clarity—are showing promising results.
These programs, many of which are small and exist at the grassroots level, are enhancing resilience and decreasing mental health challenges. By focusing on the unbroken potential for well-being that exists in each of us, they offer a perspective on mental health that has traditionally been invisible.
Innate health programs are successfully employed in schools, businesses, prisons, addiction counselling, and for the home insecure. While specific programs differ, they feature the same core elements of innate health realization—emphasizing a person’s capacity for healing. We are building the evidence to empower the systems that can bring these interventions to scale.
We are an interdisciplinary team of senior scientists and business leaders with backgrounds in education, psychology, sociology, measurement and statistics, organizational psychology and counseling. We bring years of experience working with mental health innovators, academic institutions, and business leaders for social impact and change.
Our working board offers leadership, guidance, and support to the executive team. Collectively, they offer key areas of expertise covering finance, accounting, non-profit management and law. As champions of our work, the board is instrumental in our growing network of like-minded partners and philanthropists.
We work closely with practitioners, academics and funders to provide research-backed evidence for innate health. If you’d like to work with us on a project, please get in touch
