How are different communities’ emotional needs different?  Our health is influenced by five main factors: genetics, behavior, environmental and physical influences, healthcare, and social factors. Issues relating to equity—race, education level, income, etc.) contribute to the social factor of health, also often referred to as SES social determinants of health). Childhood enrichment and parents’ involvement boosts education, education determines career, and career determines community and what resources a person has at their disposal.

Parents’ quality of life is affected by their children’s emotional wellness, and vice versa. When one family member struggles, everyone feels it.

moods curaJOY


Our social-emotional development begins the day we’re born and continues throughout adulthood.  Healthy expression of moods involves acknowledging and validating our feelings, communicating them effectively, and seeking appropriate help.

environments curaJOY


Children’s families and environments are critical in influencing their social and emotional wellness, but not all families have the financial security and know-how to promote healthy social-emotional skills in their children.

Social disconnectedness–loneliness–is a growing problem. Individual emotional wellness can only grow reliably when our mood is supported by healthy environments and maintained with positive behaviors.

behaviors curaJOY


Our behaviors can either contribute to or alleviate stress. Engaging in healthy coping mechanisms like mindfulness and positive thinking can help manage stress and prevent it from negatively impacting our emotional well-being.
