Assessment : Critical Reflection ( Essay)

Word limit / length 2000 words

Overview

PLEASE GO TO: CONSENSUS STATEMENT, www.equallywell.org.au

In 2017 the National Mental Health Commission launched “Equally Well”, which they say aims to improve quality of life of people living with mental illness by providing equal access to quality health care. By championing physical health as a priority, Equally Well ultimately aims to reduce the life expectancy gap that exists between people living with a mental illness and the general population. Some seventy state, territory and federal organisations endorsed a national consensus statement.

The National Consensus commences with an assumption that “providing equity of access to quality health care” will bridge the life expectancy gap between people living with mental illness and the general population.

This critical reflection is designed to show that you can review the individual, social and symptomatic-generated influences on consumer’s physical wellbeing.
