Mission, Vision and Goals

Get Your Wellness On” is a grass-roots movement to promote health and save lives. Encouraging dialogue and education to reduce incidence of mental illnesses that can lead to suicide, “Get Your Wellness On” promotes Eastern and Western approaches to mind and body health. The movement advances a general understanding of wellness that will empower individuals to take charge of their overall health.

Wellness through education, dialogue, openness, understanding and action is promoted through:
Get Your Wellness On Suicide Awareness & Prevention Fairs as far and wide as possible
Blogging
Advocacy
Peaceful Communications
Promoting 24-hour hotlines (in some countries they are very sketchy)
Collaboration with suicide prevention organizations such as the AFSP, media, and legislators
The Share Your Story initiative

In addition, the founder, activist and writer Esmeralda Williamson-Noble, whose twenty-year-old son Andrew died of suicide on November 3, 2009—along with volunteers of Get Your Wellness On—are available for interviews, workshops and panel and discussion forums.

Target Population
• Survivors
• University students, staff & administrators
• Parents of school-age children – The earlier the start, the greater the Wellness
• Anyone who is struggling or has struggled with depression, suicidal thoughts and who may be at risk of suicide
