After a decade working with global mental health, Dr. Hod Tamir recognized fundamental challenges to mental health and wellbeing. Patients faced immense stigma and healthcare was often compartmentalized to an individual diagnosis as opposed to addressing the whole person. WīSR was designed to move beyond the narrow view of mental health and uses a broad multi-faceted approach to health and wellness. In addition to clinical interventions, WĪSR includes community, fitness, nutrition, nature, meditation and spirituality to reach optimum health and wellbeing. Above all else, WīSR is a judgement-free space to share, heal, and grow.
