Global Wellness Institute presents new policy toolkit

The GWI toolkit

US-based Global Wellness Institute (GWI), that fuels thought leadership and innovation in the wellness industry, has released a new policy toolkit that offers specific policy actions that many stakeholders can pursue to support it.

The toolkit presents mental wellness as a coherent domain of wellness policy that is separate from, and complementary to, mental health policy.

It clarifies the distinction between mental health and mental wellness, presents key arguments for promoting wellness policies, and highlights a variety of mental wellness strategies to expand access and support all populations.

This toolkit is designed for policymakers, businesses, healthcare and helping professionals, nonprofits, media, researchers, community leaders, and individuals.

While the nature and scope of the actions will depend upon the actors involved, stakeholders have access to many tools for mental wellness promotion.

After discussing the most significant challenges to improving mental wellness, GWI has introduced policy recommendations such as social prescribing, arts and cultural engagement, access to nature, incorporating technology, and restructuring the built environment.

Whether seeking to design policies, advocate for change, or utilise existing community resources, this toolkit provides stakeholders with the knowledge and ideas to support mental wellness and enhance overall well-being. – TradeArabia News Service
