*websites at beginning of slides are helpful for research info* A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. A resource for everyday life, not the object of living. A positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities: models of health: Biomedical- (what the healthcare system is based upon, what gets the most funding) If something breaks, it needs to be fixed. Can help mental health, b/c you view it as a problem w/ your brain. More expensive to treat disease than to prevent. Encourages a view of health beyond biomedical model-biological, psychological and social. Encourages the use of health promotion along w/ treatment- changes in nutrition, behavior, etc. Eg/ depression does not cause liver disease but a person w/ depression may consume more alcohol, which may lead to liver disease. The relationship between biological, psychological and social factors are not testable.
