What is the Match Programme? 

eMbedding heAlth equiTy (MATCH) is a programme of work being carried out by the Population Health Hub that brings statutory and health care system partners, VCS organisations and residents together to improve equity and health outcomes for communities impacted by health inequalities and make system change. 

What we mean by mental wealth? 

Mental health includes emotional, psychological and social wellbeing, affecting an individual’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Through consultation with young people, the term mental wealth was used to ensure a focus was placed on the positive strategies and things individuals can learn about themselves to have good mental wellbeing.
