This paper discusses innovative mental health work being provided in a regional community health centre where values, setting and a wellbeing model have challenged traditional understandings of specialised mental health care. Comprehensive primary health care is a universal approach that transcends traditional boundaries; however, its value is often not appreciated in developed countries where technology and economics can limit its potential.
