About Stillwater

It starts with seeing the unseen, listening to the unheard, extending respect to all.

It demands professional excellence, the highest ethical standards, and belief in the inevitability of mental health.

It thrives on tolerance, humor, and unflinching kindness.

It requires continual self-reflection, rejection of opinion, and non-reactivity.

It is having the ambition to endlessly encourage the true champions of mental health: families and communities.

It is willing to embrace failure and cultivate resilience.

Its leadership is inclusive and trustworthy, eliminating hierarchy and supporting structures that create clear expectations and accountability for all.

Stillwater Global: It is the radical idea that mental health is a fundamental human right that is not adequately protected or promoted. And yet there is joy in even the most challenging and dangerous situations, which proves the indomitability of the human spirit.

“We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us, that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.”

―W. B. Yeats

Stillwater Service Expedition to Africa

Stillwater Global’s next service expedition begins on December 2, 2018, and includes 1-2 weeks at the refugee center, Hope of Children and Women Survivors of Violence in Ndejje, Uganda. We finish our expedition with a 5 day safari in the Serengeti in Tanzania.

This is a unique opportunity to combine exploration with service, and to become rapidly embedded in a desperately poor but thriving community.
