Wellbeing Model

We believe that wellbeing is not just—or even primarily—about physical health. Rather, wellbeing is about finding balance in body, mind, and spirit. In this state, we feel content, connected, energized, resilient and safe.

Wellbeing model by Mary Jo Kreitzer, RN, PhD, FAAN

Director, Center for Spirituality & Healing

Our model of wellbeing was created by Dr. Mary Jo Kreitzer, Director of the Center for Spirituality & Healing at the University of Minnesota.  In her extensive work and research around integrative health and healing, Dr. Kreitzer identified six dimensions that contribute to wellbeing: health, relationships, security, purpose, community, and environment.
