WB1:  Action for Wellbeing: The theory and the practice of promoting mental wellbeing

 

Without mental health there is no health! It is a foundational pillar for wellbeing and resiliency in the individual, whānau, hapū, iwi and community.  Mental wellbeing is more than the mere absence of mental illness. It is the capacity to feel, think and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and respond to the challenges we face. It is a positive sense of wellbeing that respects the importance of culture, diversity, equity, social justice and personal dignity. It forms the basis on which individuals; whānau hapū and iwi and communities are able to thrive. Well individuals contribute to well whānau, communities, schools and workplaces, economies and societies.

With wellbeing and mental health identified as key government priorities, it is vital that agencies and communities have a clear understanding of what is meant by mental wellbeing and the enablers to optimise wellbeing at the individual and collective levels. This two day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of mental wellbeing including the theoretical basis, the determinants of wellbeing, practical strategies to implement mental wellbeing programmes in different settings and models of collaboration for shared wellbeing outcomes

Mental wellbeing is deeply connected to wider wellbeing in our society. We need to embed this understanding in everything we do – within our mental health and addiction system, our wider health and social system, and at every level of society.

Wellbeing

Wellbeing is defined as the capacity to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance our ability to enjoy life and respond to the challenges we face. It recognise the importance of culture, diversity, equity, social justice and personal dignity. It forms the basis on which individuals, whānau, hapū and iwi and communities are able to thrive.

Well individuals contribute to well whānau, communities, schools and workplaces, economies and society.

 

Public policy, the economy, community resilience and assets, the legal and justice systems, urban planning, the environment and human rights all impact on wellbeing. Self determination, social agency, participation and connection, safe and inclusive communities are key determinants for thriving. Assessing the impact of public policy and programmes on wellbeing contributes to a more thriving, inclusive and equitable society.

Workshop Description

There has been much national and international interest in the Government’s upcoming Wellbeing Budget. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of what is meant by wellbeing economics and the measures that Government are using to measure the country’s wellbeing. The principles of wellbeing and how they inform and shape policy and programmes will be examined as well as how a wellbeing focus contributes to reducing social and economic disparities.

 

Wellbeing is much more than a warm subjective feeling. It is determined by proven social, economic and cultural factors that positively or negatively impact on the wellbeing of individuals and communities. There are several internationally recognised wellbeing models and frameworks as well as local models such as Whare Tapa Whā. Based on these determinants and frameworks it is possible to develop an evidence-based programme logic with clear wellbeing outcomes and indicators and evaluation tools. The determinants, frameworks and outcomes will be covered comprehensively in the workshop with particular focus on Treasury’s Living Standards Framework.

 

It will offer a framework for organisations to apply a wellbeing lens to its work and deliverables as well and wellbeing outcomes and indicators

Tools such as the Mental Wellbeing Impact Assessment Tool provides a systematic approach to assessing the impact of public policy, resource management and planning and programme delivery on mental wellbeing. A summary of the tool will be given.

This workshop would be of value to:

  • Local Government agencies
