Alive for Wellness was formed from the experiences of two organizations whose focus is on restoring mental health.
Health Factors began the Alive in-patient program in 2004 and then expanded its work in developing the MyOutcomes tools that help therapists and counselors improve their effectiveness with clients. These tools are used in over 20 countries by large and small mental health clinics, such as the USA military and the National Centre for Mental Health. Additionally, John Hopkins University and over 20 other universities use the tool for training their students in mental health recovery.[/span6] [span6]
