Who can use Shared Wisdom?
Shared Wisdom is intended for people and organizations with a spirit of inquiry and a commitment to serving others with excellence – people who strive every day to better support people, families and communities in their journey to mental wellbeing, resilience and recovery. This includes:
- government and non-government organizations, whether large or small in size and in urban, rural and remote settings.
- individuals, groups or organizations in a position to support mental health in the community.
The major focus is on evidence-informed practices and innovations in organizations. Some information will be particularly relevant to managers charged with overseeing these activities; other information will be relevant to individual practitioners doing the work “on the ground”. In essence, there is something for anyone who is interested in optimizing supports for mental wellbeing in the community.
