This booklet was created to share some specific wellness practices that anyone can do. We also have included some research findings on how these practices have enhanced the wellness of many people.
Before the idea of this booklet came about, we began looking at what research findings show on the impact of alternative approaches to wellness for people who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. We cast a small net, only looking at research on people who had been assigned a mental health diagnosis. By narrowing our review of the research, we hoped to get some clear findings that would inform not only people with mental health conditions but behavioral healthcare professionals and others who might consider using these approaches.
