As a concept “One Welfare” builds on the One Health concept and is a way to recognize the many social interconnections between human welfare, animal welfare and the integrity of the environment. In practice, it is also a call for a coordinated program of action:
The Council identified a need for increased awareness and advocacy for the improvement of the well-being and mental health resources for producers, farm staff, service providers and veterinary personnel within the agricultural industry. The Council therefore initiated a work area to investigate the concept of One Welfare as it pertains to the aspect of mental health promotion and prevention for these populations.
