Comprehensive Mental Health Model:
The Mental Health Model highlights three phases of mental health, which are overlaid with common organisational terms (Compliance, Risk Reduction and Best Practice). All organisations should have programs and strategies in place to ensure they are compliant and should consider additional programs and strategies to move into the pro-active phases of Prevention and Best Practice.
The ‘double ended arrow’ represents that individuals and organisations can, and do move from phase to phase. Evidence indicates that the absence of mental illness does not imply the presence of mental health, and the absence of mental health does not imply the presence of mental illness.
This program focuses on the first phase – Compliance. The other two programs in the series focus on the phases 2 and 3.
The Mental Health Model was adapted from the Two-Factor or Complete Mental Health Model, Corey L M Keyes, 2007
