The primary objective of the Contract to improve health and wellbeing through greater focus on integration, improving quality and efficiency, addressing the wider determinants of health and focusing on prevention and early intervention.  Positive mental health is a core component.

 

A Wellbeing approach provides support to people to live well, by addressing the factors which influence their health and build their capacity to be independent, resilient and maintain good health for themselves and  those around them (Liverpool PHO, 2010).

 

Many of the current solutions focus on single issues, e.g. weight management, food and health and so on. The Wellbeing approach will go beyond looking at single-issue healthy lifestyle services and a focus on illness, and instead aims to take a whole-person and community approach to improving health (Liverpool PHO, 2010).

 

The Wellbeing service will use a ‘strengths based’ approach that acknowledges and builds upon the strengths, skills and capacities of people to live healthy lives alongside the assets within the local community (Liverpool PHO 2010). This approach does not disavow the importance of structural health inequalities or income inequality.
