What is Wellness?

Wellness is being aware of and making active choices towards living a life that is healthy, balanced and fulfilling. Wellness is more than just physical health - it is a balance and integration of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

"...a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." - The World Health Organization

"...a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential." - The National Wellness Institute

IWAY
Wellness Program

On-going

In collaboration with Asian Health Services and The Public Health Institute, IWAY (Improving the Wellness of Asian Youth) was created out of a necessity to engage the Asian community about mental well-being, a topic that has long been silenced in Asian families.

Our goal is to make emotional support as accessible as possible by removing the barriers that prevent Asian youth and families from receiving the support they deserve.

We offer one-on-one confidential counseling, peer support, leadership development through youth programs, and presentations on stress and mental wellness. Our services are FREE and you can earn up to $90 in gift cards!
