Services 
 
The services that WOW offer, for free or at low cost to groups and individuals nationwide, are as diverse as the Board Members themselves. However, these services aim to meet one of both of the following goals: 1) Provide psychoeducation on topics related to well-being happiness, life satisfaction, self-care, and/or stress management, and/or 2) teach evidence-based skills related to these topics. An ongoing consideration of cultural and other individual differences is critical, thus, the skills are taught with humility and flexibility, as we also aim to help individuals identify their own unique strategies for well-being. Below are examples of some of the skills and education offered by WOW. Please refer to the About WOW section for information about the specific services offered by each WOW expert in their respective communities.
