Our Mission

Translating science into tools to cultivate and measure well-being

Our Vision

A kinder, wiser, more compassionate world

Healthy Minds Innovations, Inc. (HMI) was started in 2014 by world-renowned neuroscientist, Dr. Richard Davidson. We are a non-profit affiliated with the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison driven by a mission to translate science into tools to cultivate well-being.

HMI takes the discoveries and insights gleaned from the Center’s research - as well as that of our own scientific team - and translates them into tools that help people around the world learn and build skills of well-being. These tools include a donation-supported app, the Healthy Minds Program (which uses podcast style lessons and meditations to support increased awareness, connection, insight and purpose), and our workplace program Healthy Minds @Work (a science-based program that offers a suite of tools to improve well-being in the workplace).

In addition to creating products and services and sharing them widely, HMI also manages philanthropic activities, public speaking engagements and special initiatives that bring this work to the world. 

Our aim is to share this work as widely as possible, reaching the farthest corners of the globe to realize the vision we share with the Center: A kinder, wiser, more compassionate world.
