Literature on wellness indicates that the concept of comprehensive wellness and models created to describe wellness are helpful in conceptualizing, measuring, and promoting overall wellness in individuals. Research on missionaries, member care, and missionary mental health provision shows that missionaries possess unique characteristics, stressors, and needs, necessitating that missionary mental health provision be tailored to recognize and treat this specialized population. The current project conceptualizes missionaries through the comprehensive multidimensional concept of wellness by using grounded theory methods of qualitative analysis to analyze semistructured interviews with 13 mental health professionals who work with missionaries. The results include a preliminary model of comprehensive multidimensional missionary wellness based on the data from these interviews.
