Self-Care and Wellness Initiative

Led by the City’s Office of Safety & Wellness and in partnership with Headspace, Copper Beech Institute, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council, our self-care and wellness initiative is a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership focused on community-wide mental wellness.

Through this multi-year partnership, all Hartford residents, students, city employees, and Hartford Public Schools employees will be given free access to mindfulness and personalized meditation resources available through the Headspace app for one year.
