Mission Statement

The Positive Health and Wellness Division seeks to advance the science and practice concerning optimal human health and the positive and protective biopsychosocial factors linked to it. We seek to 1) increase the dissemination of positive health research findings, 2) improve the communication and collaboration among key stakeholders (such as researchers, clinicians, healthcare policy makers, and consumers), and 3) foster the mentoring and development of future positive health researchers, clinicians, and policy makers; all on a global basis.

Purpose Statement:

The purpose of the division is to provide an organized, collegial, member-driven collaborative platform for professionals involved in positive health (academics, researchers, clinicians, organizations, practitioners, consultants, coaches), in order to use positive psychology to advance human longevity, quality of life, and physiological and psychological wellbeing (including decreased morbidity).
