Well Being Trust: Our First Five Years

When Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health came together in 2016 to form Providence St. Joseph Health, the newly formed health system promised to transform the way care is delivered and to address the greatest health needs in its communities. To deliver on this commitment, Providence St. Joseph Health made a $100 million investment, plus an additional $30 million to be invested in California from 2017 to 2019, as an endowment to create the Institute for Mental Health and Wellness, later renamed Well Being Trust, an independent 501(c)(3) organization. 

Throughout the first five years, the Well Being Trust team worked diligently to advance the mental, social and spiritual health of the nation. The great work and efforts to shape vital public policy changes, community and organizational practice changes, and bring new philanthropic investment to fill gaps, will have a lasting impact on the nation.
