Growing mental health in our community is a similar analogy to growing a tree.  Where there’s a Will has planted the seed.

PERMA, the trunk, is at the core of Where there’s a Will and provides direction for its growth.

  • Positive emotions – feeling good
  • Engagement – being completely absorbed in activities
  • Relationships – being authentically connected to others
  • Meaning – purposeful existence
  • Accomplishment

The PERMA model was designed by Martin Seligman with five core elements of psychological well-being and happiness. Seligman believes that these five elements can help people reach a life of fulfillment, happiness, and meaning and ultimately flourishing.
