This course uses health promotion and population health frameworks to inform an understanding of mental health that goes beyond diseases and individual behaviors to consider the social determinants of mental health (SDMH). Situational transitions that are layered onto the SDMH create further health challenges. Health promotion focuses on advocating for the principles of primary health care to achieve resilience, justice and empowerment for individuals and families living with addictions and mental health challenges.
