DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE
Most discovery calls aren't about you. This call will be different.
Just as our approach to wellness is unique, so is our process of understanding the needs of your staff, clients, community, and you too.
This is your call, so we'll only cover what makes sense for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Many of the service agencies we work with have similar challenges and needs for prevention, but we'd like to get a sense of the specific ones faced by your community. We'll dive into what your needs assessments say, community engagement, any organizational or leadership challenges, and marketing and outreach needs.
We'll talk about your logic model, programmatic goals and strategies for community engagement, organizational culture, employee wellness, leadership, and any other outcomes your organization may be aiming for.
Once we get to know you and your organizational needs, we will share more about the ways 5 Bridges can help you reach your goals. We'll overview our program, curriculum, outcomes, populations served, offerings, and a brief demo.

5 Bridges is person-centered integrative wellness planning that is accessible for most adult and youth populations, including those with risk-factors related to trauma, mental illness, substance use, incarceration, and chronic illness. Evidence-based practices are the foundation of our curriculum and coaching process. We follow these approaches: - Trauma and Grief-Informed - Harm-Reduction Model - Motivational Interviewing (MI) - Health Belief Model (HBM) - Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) Agency staff and wellness professionals have also found success utilizing the 5 Bridges method. Addressing challenges like work-life balance, stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue allow those who serve to also feel supported. Created by Jacob Moore, Founder of NoStigmas mental health nonprofit, this science-backed system is the result of two decades of research, clinical opinion, lived expertise, and survey data. From inpatient and outpatient facilities, private and public schools, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, we empower staff and clients to build resilience and learn to thrive in life.
We envision an expansive culture of wellness where everyone has access to the knowledge and tools necessary to thrive in life. By empowering organizations, wellness practitioners, and clients with the 5 Bridges system, we can create a worldwide community of total wellness. Lifelong wellness begins by meeting people where they are and growing from there. Through 5 Bridges coaching and workshops, anyone can discover opportunities to improve their wellness through strategies and tools that are simple to implement and build resilience.We aim to be the go-to standard for holistic wellness programming.

Our Objectives & Outcomes are to empower individuals to take ownership of their wellness, help build sustainable wellness practices, introduce modalities that build resilience, utilize wellness as prevention, and increase one's capacity to thrive in life.
Integrative wellness planning is tailored to the individual's needs, preferences, and goals. This personalization helps increase motivation and commitment to therapies, treatment plans, reentry strategies and additional health and lifestyle goals.
The holistic nature of integrative wellness planning ensures all aspects of an individual's life are considered in treatment planning. This includes physical health, mental health, social connections, environment, lifestyle habits, and more. By examining these elements in relation to one another, it becomes easier to identify and address potential barriers to treatment adherence.
EDUCATION & SELF-EFFICACY
Our integrative wellness planning includes educating individuals about their wellness challenges and the importance of adhering to their treatment plans. This can enhance self-efficacy and empower individuals to actively engage in their self-improvement process.
PREVENTATIVE & COORDINATED CARE
Integrative wellness also involves preventive measures. It encourages lifestyle changes and healthier habits that can help manage symptoms and reduce risk, while increasing resilience and program adherence. We encourage the involvement of a team of professionals from various disciplines. This level of coordination can help ensure that potential roadblocks are identified and addressed promptly.
Regular check-ins or follow-ups can help keep individuals accountable for their treatment adherence. This often takes the form of coaching or peer support. This shared experience can help individuals feel less isolated and more understood, which can improve their motivation to stick with their plans.
WHAT ARE THE 5 BRIDGES?
HOW YOU CONNECT
BOND is the act of connecting to anyone or anything that provides you with some form of support. This can include your beliefs, people, pets, places, objects and even knowledge—your sources of strength.
FUEL is anything and everything that goes into your system in any way. Beyond food, we look at conversations, media, and even the air we breathe. Everything that goes in has an impact on the system.
WHAT YOU INTAKE
MOVE is the kinesthetic output of your body. Most commonly, we think of physical fitness, but this can also include the internal movements that happen within your body all the time, like circulation & digestion.
WHAT YOU DO
WHEN YOU RECOVER
REST is any time your body, mind or spirit get to recover and reset. Sleep is our primary source of REST, but we go deeper to examine other approaches, such as time in nature and restorative practices.
GIVE explores how we contribute to others and the world around us in positive ways. GIVE can elevate us to another level and feed our soul, but as with every Bridge, it's important to learn balance and boundaries.
