    What is

    BeWellPBC

    BeWellPBC is a movement to advance behavioral health and wellness for all.

    We are driven by a promise to do better for our children, families, and neighbors.
    By working collectively with residents, providers, and systems, we are taking action to change the status quo and positively impact Palm Beach County’s behavioral health outcomes.

    We are open to others’ lived experiences and other people’s perspectives.

    We exhibit kindness to all and are sensitive to the needs of others, understanding that behavioral health touches everyone.

    We believe that continuous learning and knowledge-sharing is a powerful force for change.

    We lift up all those around us by encouraging and strengthening a sense of community.

    We value collaboration and cultivate relationships to build on our support systems.

    We embrace differences, explore other viewpoints, and value empathy.

    We aspire to do better for the health and wellbeing of our children, families and neighbors.

    We welcome people to be their authentic selves and value their unique contributions and lived experiences.

    History

    Lofty Goal

    Mission

    BeWellPBC, launched in 2019, is creating a movement and a mission to advance behavioral health and wellness in Palm Beach County. Our three focus areas: Stewardship Coordination & Alignment, Workforce Pipeline, and Community Solutions are united through BeWellPBC’s Lofty Goal.

    We envision a community in which every person in Palm Beach County feels hopeful, supported, connected, and empowered.

    BeWellPBC’s mission is to bring together stewards from every corner of our community—residents, system leaders, providers, businesses, faith-based organizations, youth, and parents—to lead the change they want to see in their families, their schools, their workplaces, and their cities.
