The realities of the coronavirus have exacerbated the need for a more robust mental health strategy at work that incorporates the whole life realities of employees. This is what makes the work we do at Interpersonal Wellness Services Inc exciting! We are currently engaged in a partnership with Miami University, Ohio on the State funded pilot program to address staff mental health needs in schools.


WIS® is a whole person systems-based perspective model that creates awareness of a broad range of areas where employees could be leaking vital energy that may lead to burnout and overwhelm. It also allows users to assess how well they are in nine wellness dimensions by providing an engaging visual model to enhance engagement, and an immediate score they can take action to change on their own or with assistance from wellness coaches. This awareness raising exercise lets employees create a personal action plan to improve or quickly change what is happening in those areas of their lives.

We bring a powerfully inclusive and engaging wellness framework to the partnership with Miami University, to complete the Ohio State-funded Staff Wellness pilot project with up to 75 school workspaces across the State, with a goal to improve mental health and psychological safety at work.

Through our work with this project, we plan to expand our capacity to support more organizations wanting to redefine wellness at work globally. Preliminary results from this project will be shared at the annual Global Workplace Wellness Summit, which brings together professionals from around the globe to share best practices in the field.

This year the Summit will be held in the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba, in central Canada, from September 28 – 29, 2022. There is a lot going on in this project to support staff wellness at work.
