The Equally Well initiative aims to improve the Physical Health of people living with Addictions and Mental Illness, through service user education and effective collaboration with organisations across the health system.
Through our experience we have come to understand that when experiencing mental distress and/or substance related issues, disconnection is the rule rather than the exception. This does not always mean just self, social and relational disconnections, it can also mean that a disconnect occurs in the engagement from medical and physical health agencies and supports. There can be a broad spectrum of biopsychosocial reasons for this and can be very individualised. A lack of self-care when mentally unwell is generally a consequence or symptom of unwellness.
In the provision of best care directed at the ‘Whole Person’, Capri Sanctuary supports the Equally Well initiative.
