Being Well by Believing We Can

March 2016

A six-month project examining the evidence linking agency to health and using it to propose a new approach to community health for a place-based foundation

In this work, we harnessed and examined experiential and academic knowledge linking agency and health. We blended what we learnt into a critique of the foundation’s idea of approaching community health through the lens of well-being and agency (rather than bio-medical measures). We also proposed an approach for the foundation to test a refined version of its ideas in practice.
