We have overcome adversity, and are helping others do the same.
At our core, we are passionately driven social entrepreneurs who invest in people disrupting their approach to mental health.
Our mission is to help people find clarity to uncover life’s most vital questions:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Who are my people?
What is my purpose?
We intentionally leverage cornerstone science foundations and evidence-based healthy habits that help develop structure, providing an individual with the tools to create personal freedom, peace, and clarity. We do so by creating:
- Mental health digital applications
- Custom empathy-building experiences
- Water therapy retreats
- And ongoing wellness training that radically improves our emotional intelligence, purpose, and connections.
The NSG team is an impressive collective of individuals that possess two critical elements.
Firstly, they have the skills necessary to move this project forward, administrate business, and facilitate the change in others this program seeks to accomplish.
Secondly, and possibly most importantly, all team members hold a story of survival, of overcoming adversity, and desire to share that story with others to help inspire them in their life journeys.Our Manifesto
