The evolution of the Community Mental Health Movement from tertiary prevention to the promotion of well-being demonstrates the field's growth, development and increased knowledge of mental health and the factors necessary to promote positive mental health. Although tertiary (rehabilitative) and second ary (early intervention) programs are still necessary and very much in practice today, it is clear that to incorporate prevention in their names is a misnomer. True prevention can only be through primary prevention and promotion of well-being programs. These types of programs, especially promotion of well-being are the present and future of the development and maintenance of positive mental health.

We must move away from solely targeting individuals to targeting the environments in which people live, work and learn.
