Who Are We?

The Bounce Back Project is a unique collaborative of physicians, nurses, hospital leaders, staff and community partners in Wright County, MN, who have come together for a single purpose — to impact the lives of individuals, communities, and organizations by promoting health through happiness.

Numerous studies have shown that using simple tools to help us retrain our mind to focus on the positive can increase feelings of well-being and decrease feelings of depression. These tools can also open us to the possibility of greater social connections, improved sleep, enhanced memory and stronger immune system function. It’s simple… and life changing.

The tools shared by Bounce Back are easy to use, can make a difference and anyone can do them! These tools include:

» Random Acts of Kindness
» Three Good Things
» Gratitude Letters
» Social Connections
» Self-care and Mindfulness

Get Happy!

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

How Did Bounce Back Get Started?

The Bounce Back Project was born out of loss when two highly respected and loved physicians died in 2014. These deaths caused us to pause and ask some important questions — not only about how fragile life is, but about the choices we make each day.

A group of physicians and hospital leaders participated in a resilience conference hosted by the Minnesota Hospital Association. At this conference, we learned about a number of tools that promote resiliency and decrease burnout. Our physicians recognized this work held not only personal meaning, but would be meaningful for our patients and our communities.

In our first year, more than 6,000 people heard Bounce Back presentations. Individuals are experiencing renewed purpose and meaning. Our physicians are changing the way they practice medicine.

We recognize these tools make a difference in our own lives. Bounce Back has given us a way to adjust our outlook. We live our lives experiencing it fully. It’s a journey of courage that has changed our focus and the way we live each day.

Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.
