Strategies and Innovations for Developing Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing
In a rapidly changing society where public health, mental health and wellbeing challenges are increasingly complex and continually evolving, a strategic and innovative approach is needed. But how do we develop such an approach? How do we overcome the challenges facing the health and wellbeing sector? And how do we build a strong, responsive and resilient public health for the future?
This exciting and challenging course will provide participants with knowledge and understanding related to new and existing strategies for developing health, mental health and wellbeing at individual, community, national and international levels. It will explore the evidence-base and practicalities associated with different strategies, as well as encourage participants to think innovatively and creatively in relation to health, mental health and wellbeing improvement and promotion.
The course will enable those working in the health and wellbeing sector to advance their expertise, exchange ideas, and explore the emerging evidence base in an open, questioning and supportive environment.
