"When 'I' is replaced with 'we', even I-llness becomes We-llness" ~ Malcolm X
We are a community. We are connecting people who are focused on wellness to service providers that are also focused on wellness. Our goal is to empower leaders and citizens to come together and solve social and health issues by uncovering and dealing with root causes.
Based on a model of Education, Outreach and Community Engagement, myHealthyCommunity is an online community platform that brings together citizens, practitioners, groups, and community leaders in order to focus on all aspects of wellness (mental, physical, emotional/spiritual, environmental, social, financial) in order to come together to find solutions. Designed to provide a platform for connecting like-minded people, it provides a wealth of information and links to health and social related topics, as well as a platform for people to connect and discuss topics of interest.
It is a social enterprise with both a membership model and a public access model. For members, it provides services for blogging and advertising, with service providers and partners receiving the myHealthyCommunity stamp for use within their own business. For public access, visitors have access to lots of education material as well as the ability to locate practitioners in their local area. … Advertising opportunities are also available at various levels.
We are also developing an app for mobile devices where people can find “my Healthy Community” participants in any geographical area
