This subject investigates the broader perspective of community health and wellness in child and family health nursing. The shared community responsibility of family support is explored together with processes that promote family and community health and wellness. Students develop their construct and understanding of family function, assessment, and stress factors, especially related to transitional periods. This subject facilitates the student's ability to interact appropriately with families building on families' strengths and determining appropriate interventions. The signs of distress and dysfunction in the family that may have an adverse effect on infant mental health are determined and addressed. Students gain an increased appreciation of the significant role the family plays in relation to the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its members and to the health of the whole community.
