The State of Well-being Strategy in South Australiais a blueprint for how to measure and build wellbeing and resilience, across the life cycle, at the scale of a state or nation. It is producing a unique body of research that has national and global relevance. Using the "lead, measure, build and embed" approach, in a research framework, it is improving people's well-being and resilience, while creating a health translation prototype for the world. This framework uses PERMA + as its measure and has adopted a train-the-trainer approach, inspired initially by that developed by the US Army in its resilience training program.
