What is health promotion and wellbeing?

Health promotion is about helping people and communities to gain more control over their lives and improve their overall health. Health Promotion works through enabling and empowering people and communities to make positive changes. It is concerned with encouraging people to take action about their health.

Wellbeing is concerned with fulfilling our potential, having meaning in life and feeling that our lives are worthwhile. It’s about how happy and confident we are and what we think about ourselves; how capable we are to problem-solve and how resilient we are in dealing with problems and stress; and about the kind of relationships we have with our family, friends, work colleagues, and neighbours.
