WA Mental Wellbeing Framework
The Mental Health Commission is developing the Western Australian Mental Wellbeing Framework (the Framework) to identify the initiatives that optimise wellbeing, keep people well and prevent mental health conditions. These initiatives can be delivered across the whole community or in settings where people learn, work and participate in recreational activities.
Mental wellbeing is a positive state, not just the absence of a mental health condition. Mental wellbeing is about feeling good emotionally and functioning well psychologically and socially. Everyone has a level of mental wellbeing, whether they are living with a mental health condition or not.
In order to work towards rebalancing the mental health system and keeping people well, the Framework will guide investment in mental health promotion and prevention. It will also provide a guide for other Government departments, NGOs and community organisations wishing to implement wellbeing initiatives.
This is the first time that the MHC has engaged specifically on initiatives for the promotion of mental wellbeing and to prevent mental health conditions. Hearing your ideas and feedback is critical to ensuring the Framework identifies the initiatives that optimise wellbeing for the whole community.
This survey will take roughly 10 minutes and focus on getting your input to inform the development of a draft Framework to be developed by the project’s Expert Reference Group.
