Welcome

to Project Healing Hive

Project Healing Hive is a grassroots organization founded in 2019. Our mission is to improve access to evidence-based CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) for overall health and mental wellness through research and development, advocacy, and community service.

Our team is dedicated to developing innovative, accessible mental health and wellness solutions that empower individuals and communities. We are passionate about designing systems that are responsive to the real needs of people, and that reflect the diversity of human experience. We believe that creating spaces in which individuals can connect with each other, find support, and build community is an essential component of mental wellness.

Accessibility Gap for CAM 

We are dedicated to providing accessible mental health and wellness care to those who need it most. We believe that everyone deserves access to resources and support that can help them improve their mental and emotional well-being. Our pay-it-forward system ensures that our mission is sustainable, allowing us to serve as many individuals as possible. Join us in our quest to make mental health care accessible to all, regardless of income or background.

Mental health and wellness shouldn't be a wealth issue!

At Project Healing Hive, we're committed to building community support systems that helps people achieve lasting mental health and wellness. Our Pay It Forward structure calls for community accountability and responsibility to take action and make a difference in the lives of others.   

About

what is CAM?

(complementary and alternative medicine)

Complementary medicine is used along with standard medical treatment but is not considered by itself to be standard treatment. Alternative medicine is used instead of standard medical treatment, or it can be integrated with standard treatment. 

A few examples of CAM:

  • meditation: focused breathing or repetition of words or phrases to quiet the mind and lessen stressful thoughts and feelings.

  • biofeedback: using special machines, the patient learns how to control certain body functions that are normally out of one's awareness (such as heart rate and blood pressure).

  • yoga: ancient system of practices used to balance the mind and body through stretches and poses, meditation, and controlled breathing.

  • tai chi: a form of gentle exercise and meditation that uses slow sets of body movements and controlled breathing.

  • creative outlets: art, music, or dance.

Project Healing Hive integrates CAM creating a "whole person health" approach to mental health and wellness. Whole person health or holistic refers to helping individuals, families, communities, and populations improve and restore their health in multiple interconnected domains—biological, behavioral, social, environmental—rather than just treating disease. Research on whole person health includes expanding the understanding of the connections between these various aspects of health, including connections between organs and body systems.

Current standard model care for mental health and overall wellness does not typically include complementary (CAM) therapies. Even though proven to be effective they still are not covered by state or private insurances. Yet CAM therapies are accessible to those with expendable income. Leaving out those who have been statistically shown to benefit most from CAM therapies.
