Mental HEALTH vs Mental WELLBEING

Often, when mental health is referenced, it aligns with a clinical diagnosis or treatment. Whereas the reference of mental wellbeing encompasses all elements of prevention, intervention, and support. Mental health impacts 20-30% of the workforce, and mental wellbeing impacts 100% of the workforce. Both are important!

Organizations need to build a strategy that encompasses the full spectrum of mental health and wellbeing to become a mentally strong organization.

HealthSource Solutions has developed a model that supports organization’s in taking a multi-faceted approach to dive deeper into the issue of mental health and wellbeing. Our objective is to help broaden an organization’s approach and implement interventions that reach beyond end point solutions.
