Be Well in Paradise Inc, a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit, has been a premier resource for connecting locals and visitors in Southwest Florida with inspiring experiences that align mind, body, heart, and spirit. Beginning in 2021, we recognize the rising need to support and expand Mental Wellness programs. To that end, we are asking for donations to support this worthy cause that affects so many people, including the very young.

The Global Wellness Institute defines “Mental Wellness” as “an internal resource that helps us think, feel, connect, and function; it is an active process that helps us to build resilience, grow and flourish.”  Be Well in Paradise is proud that many of our community wellness programs provide clear pathways to improving creativity, growth, rejuvenation and connection.  In other words, we are already providing opportunities to improve well being. But now more than ever, we wish to amplify this effort more proactively.  Our intention is to provide skills and strategies that can help individuals more effectively and easily navigate through difficult challenges whether personal, environmental or societal. Our emphasis is on mental wellness rather than treating mental illness. As GWI says: Mental Wellness “is an active process of moving from languishing, resilience, to flourishing.   We want to support and expand this mental wellness initiative.  Will you help? 

Be Well in Paradise supports student wellness programs with financial assistance for mental wellness initiatives in; emotional, psychological, physical or social well-being programs. We are particularly sensitive to the needs of young people. According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 1 in 3 of all adolescents ages 13 to 18 will experience an anxiety disorder. These numbers have been rising steadily each year with anxiety and depression reaching peaks especially among teenagers in 2020. We are hoping to stop the increase with your help. 100% of donations will go to this mental wellness cause.
