    • Identifying the gap
      • Focus on wellbeing: ‘a positive state of mind and body, feeling safe and able to cope, with a sense of connection with people, communities and the wider environment.Well-being is therefore distinct from mental illness. Someone can have symptoms of a mental illness and still experience well-being just as a person with a physical illness or long-term disability can’
      (New Horizons, 2009)
      • Addition to management of mental health conditions – existing structures and care
