About Wellbeing SA
Wellbeing SA is a state government agency leading a renewed focus on prevention and supporting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of all South Australians.
By doing this, our long term vision is to create a more balanced health and wellbeing system. This means changing from a system that focuses on treating people when they become unwell, to one that is based on promoting wellbeing, preventing ill health and injury, and supporting people to stay well and lead healthier lives.
Wellbeing SA is working across all areas of prevention to lead system change and better support community health and wellbeing:
- Primary prevention: we are promoting wellbeing and supporting people to lead healthy lives.
- Secondary prevention: we are supporting people to prevent risk factors developing into established disease.
- Tertiary prevention: we are supporting people to prevent complications and reduce the need for admission or readmission to hospital.
