At the Contentment Foundation, we strive to be the change we want to see in the world. We value universal, scientifically-evidenced approaches to wellbeing that are accepted across all cultures and belief systems. Our Four Pillars of Wellbeing program teaches four key areas of wellbeing psychology, which also serve as our core foundation values. We believe that changing the world first requires changing ourselves through self-awareness, selfless service, curiosity, and emotional intelligence.

From Tragedy to Global Movement
After two devastating school shootings in Connecticut, Dr. Daniel Cordaro decided to use his faculty position at Yale University to write a mental health program designed to reduce trauma and save lives in schools. What started as an act of kindness turned into a movement as organizations around the world requested training in the Four Pillars of Wellbeing. The Contentment Foundation was born out of a desire to improve the mental health of children and teachers, and eventually became a scalable system of wellbeing for entire cities. We expanded to serve corporations, executives, and individuals around the world. It’s been a long journey, but we’re proud of how far we’ve come. Will you join us to help transform the next City of Wellbeing?
