Purpose and goal

The purpose is to make a shift: -from patient to healthy life style -from medication to prevention -from treatment to co-creation The vision of this project is to develop preventive health services that support health care to deal with the challenge in addressing lifestyle-related mental health issues for younger people. We have created a consortia that are willing to invest in a platform where diverse actors are engaged jointly develop new preventitive health services.

Expected results and effects

3 county councils have been active (Värmland, Blekinge and Skåne) and two more are invited. We have had discussions and pitching the idea for over 20 other organisations from both NGOs, companies and social ventures. We have created a first visualization of the service concept and the preliminary functions of a digital platform. Moving forward we expect 5 county councils to run pilots on the service concept within 5 years.

Planned approach and implementation

Innovation Skåne, RISE and Landstinget i Värmland have been the group that drive the everyday wo. A search for other initiatives has been done in order to learn, and much of the work has then built on 2 projects. Hälsorörelsen that RISE is engaged in where we found both actors and also interesting concepts for preventive health services. A project in Värmland that work with mental health issues for young people and with digital services to meet and engage with young people. We have had discussions with organisations separately and in the end we had a design jam where all actors could take part.
