Over-The-Rainbow (OTR) is a mental wellness initiative of the WholeTree Foundation, the family foundation of Yen-Lu & Yee Ling Chow in loving memory of their son Lawrance H. Chow. We are a one-stop hub for mental wellness. Our main mission is to create a community based on the timeless wisdoms of love, compassion, truth, beauty, harmony, joy, generosity. We call this community the Circle-of-Care.
The Circle-of-Care has the self at the center, supported by family, friends, healthcare professionals, wellness experts, and society at large. Each individual is the key to his/her own health and wellbeing. We wish to empower the individual with self-help and self-healing strategies and tools while providing the necessary care and support resources to help him/her navigate the ups-and-downs of life.
Mental wellness is not just the absence of mental illness, but the attainment of happiness and wellbeing. Our mission is to transform mental wellness for the 21st century. We envision a world where mental illness is no longer stigmatized, and mental wellness is a top priority - where every young person is given the opportunity to fulfill their life potential thru the journey of self-discovery, healing and transformation. This is our dream, our life calling.
Over the Rainbow,
There is no Darkness vs. Light —
For without Darkness, there is no Light.
There is no Sorrow vs. Joy —
For without Sorrow, there is no Joy.
There is no Sunshine vs. Rain —
There is no Sane vs. Insane.
There is no Us vs. Them.
For we are One & the Same.
You and I,
We are all connected in a Circle of Love.
You’re Not alone — we are in this together.
Through Thick and Thin,
Through Sunshine and Rain.
So take our hands,
Walk with us,
Out of the Rain,
Into the Sunshine,
And into the Light.
