The National Wellness Institute is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Foundation for Financial Wellness (FFW) to develop financial wellness trainings. Initial courses will offer The Case for Financial Wellness and a facilitator certificate that provides resources and training for wellness professionals to present to the populations they serve.

More and more companies are embracing wellness as integral to a flourishing business (from employee engagement right down the line to profits). As this interconnectedness between wellness and finance becomes more and more evident, so does the realization that we as individuals need to be knowledgeable in the foundational skills of maintaining healthy finances to fully strive for holistic wellness. A person's level of financial wellness impacts, or is impacted by, his or her level of wellness in all Six Dimensions of Wellness: emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual.

Programs that include skill-building in the foundations of finance as well as in the competencies for wellness promotion are long overdue. For both NWI and FFW, this is an opportunity to assist our member communities and benefit the general population with evidence-informed tools and competency-based training. These trainings will help wellness professionals, and the populations they serve, know the facts and gain real-world techniques to foster behavior change that improves and sustains financial wellness.

These new trainings will be delivered through NWI and FFW distribution channels. Be sure to join our mailing list to receive updates.
