SELF is wellness you can trust.

From the Self.com About Us page: "We help you take good care of yourself, your loved ones, and your community. No matter the platform, our work reflects this service-driven mission and the core values of inclusivity, accuracy, autonomy, and empathy. We recognize that wellness is as much about self-expression and self-compassion as it is about workout classes and healthy eating; that it’s not all-or-nothing; and that every person’s individual goals for wellness are different, and that’s great. We also recognize that personal health is intimately connected to community health, and that better health outcomes often require systemic change. We’re all in this together, and SELF is here for you."
