Our work

Wellbeing SA’s work centres on creating a balanced health and wellbeing system that supports improved physical, mental and social wellbeing for all South Australians.

Our work spans all areas of prevention; promoting physical, social and mental wellbeing and the prevention of risk factors in people who are well, identifying people who have risk factors or early onset illness to support mitigation, cure or management, and ensuring that people who have a disease can receive the best care, close to their home and community.

Wellbeing SA’s work is focused on three priority areas – the early years; mental health and wellbeing and suicide prevention; and chronic disease, integrated care and injury prevention.

Explore more about our approach to delivering our work in the pages below; from our use of a population health approach, to how our priority focus areas and strategic enablers are shaping our work.
