Why Wellbeing?

Midland. An Inclusive Community.

Together. Forward. Bold. An Exceptional Place Where Everyone Thrives.

Who We Are

The Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition is a group of over 120 members of the Midland Community who are working to help Midland achieve its vision: Together. Forward. Bold. An exceptional place where everyone thrives.

Our coalition’s specific vision is that Midland is a healthy community where everyone belongs, feels safe, and thrives. All stakeholders invest in creating wellbeing and work together to become a recognized community where all citizens are flourishing in measurable and visible ways. This legacy of caring has been passed down to us and we commit to carrying it forward.

How Wellbeing Benefits Everyone

When we share a common language, we create connectivity to our work and wellbeing at all levels: individual, organizational, and community. The collective sum of our work is far more impactful than our individual work. Our plan is to connect all wellbeing initiatives and programs with a shared “hub” model. As all initiatives, workplaces, and groups align to a “hub”, we work to sustain wellbeing across all sectors of the community.
