Dunn’s High-Level Wellness defines the difference between wellness and good health, using 4 processes: Being, Belonging, Becoming, and Befitting.

The Health-Illness Continum is a measure of a person’s level of health. This circle of being is a continuously changing state.  




Other Models of Health and Illness 

Agent-Host-Environment Model –balance=health, imbalance=risk of disease

Health Belief Model -perception of susceptibility to disease, seriousness of a disease, benefits of action (educative)

Health Promotion Model– Self-esteem from environmental interaction
