‘This plan sets a 20-year vision for mental health and wellbeing in SA, focusing on state-wide strategic directions over the next five years. It is not only about mental illness, but aims to shift the focus to a whole-of-person, whole-of-life, whole-of-government and whole-of-community approach to
building, sustaining and strengthening the mental health and wellbeing of all South Australians’

Mental health and wellbeing is more than the absence of mental illness… it is a state in which a person has the skills and  resources to navigate adversity, meet their needs, and live in a way they find meaningful. A person can have good mental health and wellbeing whether or not they have experienced or continue to experience mental illness.
