Agree with many of these above:
[+ would add these examples]

• 'Innovation adoption', 'technology'
[e.g. Integrating Digital Health & mHealth solutions.]

• 'More emphasis and clarity on Self Management.'
[e.g. Better strategies for public health & digital resources for Prevention.]

• 'Achieving equality for mental health, key to seeing person holistically...'
[e.g. Integrated Health - includes access to complementary health, including effective therapy referrals.]
