Through our work, we promote well-being in the world by creating and sharing tools and services that are based on rigorous scientific research. Alongside our colleagues at the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we are dedicated to realizing the vision of a kinder, wiser, more compassionate world. We are located in vibrant downtown Madison, Wisconsin.
