Healing ourselves and healing the earth is Commonweal’s mission—and has been so for four decades. We care about at-risk children, people with cancer, health professionals, and the healing that comes from caring for the earth. We care equally about healing for the rest of us, and about what each of us needs to heal.
Our programs in the field of health and healing are deep and diverse. The Commonweal Cancer Help Program, featured by Bill Moyers in his award-winning series Healing and the Mind, is among the foremost residential support programs for people with cancer. The Institute for the Study of Health and Illness pioneered their Healer’s Art curriculum that is now in 70 medical schools internationally. And the Collaborative on Health and the Environment is the premier global network for environmental health science dialogue. We encourage you to browse through the full list of our powerful health and healing programs, below.
