Wellbeing model by Mary Jo Kreitzer, RN, PhD, FAAN
Director, Center for Spirituality & Healing
Our model of wellbeing was created by Dr. Mary Jo Kreitzer, Director of the Center for Spirituality & Healing at the University of Minnesota. In her extensive work and research around integrative health and healing, Dr. Kreitzer identified six dimensions that contribute to wellbeing: health, relationships, security, purpose, community, and environment.
