Keys to Mental/Emotional Wellness

Keys to Mental/Emotional Wellness is a philosophy, along with a system of educational programs, developed by NAMI Greater Monmouth to help our members and potential members.  The ten Keys are:

  1. There are many things which make us mentally or emotionally unwell
  2. We support each pther in moving towards mental/emotional wellness and recovery
  3. We strive to understand recovery and wellness
  4. Wellness and recovery require meaning and purpose
  5. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery require good coping mechanisms 
  6. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery require mindfulness and planning
  7. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery require - and build - emotional strengths and emotional maturity
  8. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery require Physical Wellness
  9. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery can be supported with professional assistance
  10. Mental and Emotional Wellness and Recovery are supported with ongoing learning and growth

Our Keys to Mental/Emotional Wellness booklet expands on these concepts, and provides useful tools for people trying to get or stay well.  We offer a series of community outreach presentations, talks which overview the concepts of wellness and recovery based on the Keys.

A Keys Learning Collaborative takes place twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays, 3:45-4:30 pm, at Moving Forward Community Wellness Center in New Brunswick.
