"If we are going to repair a fragmented society where many people feel that they
do not have control of their lives, we must not concentrate on deficits, but on
assets, skills and capacities. Health improvement isn't something you do to
people; rather it is something you do with people. We need a positive view of
well-being rather than a negative view of illness. People have assets and qualities
within them that allow them to live healthy lives and make positive choices."
