8 What is health? Naidoo & Wills 2009 Health is holistic and includes different dimensions - individual, societal, environmental and global. A holistic approach to health means taking account of separate influences and the interaction of different dimensionsNaidoo & Wills 2009It’s exciting times for Health Improvement with H&WB now a curricular area in its own right.However, H&WB is not new – 5-14 Health education guidelines have been around for many years and there has been an enormous amount of good work under the HPS umbrella.No-one is starting from scratch with H&WBH&WB in CfE is about building on the good practice that has been done by health promoting schoolsPartnerships are crucial to successTherefore its very important that everyone in the partnership has a shared understanding of what we mean by ‘health’This definition encapsulates the holistic nature of health in relation to the various dimensions that interact.Health is more than just ‘not being ill, not needing to go to the GP’ – it is a resource for everyday living – the better our health, the better able we are to cope with whatever life throws at us.
