Well Being Trust Toolbox: Solutions for advancing mental health and well-being in your community

The Well Being Trust Toolbox, developed with Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), intends to equip community leaders and decision makers with solutions and resources for improving mental health and well-being outcomes in their organizations and communities.

The Toolbox, for health sector leaders (providers, payers, purchasers) as well as policymakers, philanthropy and community leaders, features evidence-informed resources to help everyone improve the mental health and well-being of people and places.

WBT and OHSU assembled the evidence and tools that providers, payers and policymakers need to understand what works when making system changes to integrate behavioral health and medical care as well as connecting patients/families to resources outside the hospital walls. For instance, Well Being Trust convened peer-learning networks to develop blueprints guiding real-world implementation, and shared lessons learned from healthcare institutions that successfully collaborated with community organizations and launched integration efforts, overcoming significant barriers to do so.

How do you use the Well Being Trust Toolbox?

The Using the Toolbox section is designed to provide information that can be adapted to your needs, regardless of where you are in the process of initiating or implementing organizational or community change. You can start at the beginning by reviewing the current evidence or start at a later step in the process that may be better aligned with your organization or your community’s needs or stage of development.
