ABOUT

We are a social enterprise that translates the science of happiness and well-being into actions people can take.

Happiness Is Serious

Happiness is a serious issue. There is a growing body of science and research around happiness and well-being.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

The number of people with mental health conditions has been on the rise. Despite having more accessible treatments and awareness campaigns, the trend remains worrying.

Happiness Can Be a Choice

Happiness Initiative is a social enterprise that translates the science of happiness and well-being into actions people can take. Hence, helping people live a more fulfilling life and take a preventive approach towards mental health conditions.

We focus on three areas:
1. Raising awareness on the science of wellbeing
2. Translating research into practice and programmes
3. Building a community that promotes the practice of wellbeing.
