How to include BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL THEORY in your Pathology Prevention plans.
The eight mental health perspectives are balanced by the Health Guardian to provide a holistic lens needed for primary mental healthcare and pathology prevention. This supports an improved mental health capability leading to self-reliance, increasing wellness, and an abundant life.
The Biopsychosocial Perspective is a medical model that attempts to demonstrate links between multiple body systems and human environments that create risks for illness. For instance, in recent decades many links have been made between smoking, smog and chemicals and the risk of contracting various kinds of cancers. While traditional biomedical models of clinical medicine focus on pathophysiology and other biological approaches to disease, the biopsychosocial perspective emphasizes the importance of understanding human health and illness in their fullest contexts.
