Staying active, belonging and making a commitment that is meaningful to you can help you keep mentally well!

 

 Keeping mentally healthy is just as important as staying physically healthy.

And the good news is there are things we can all do to promote our mental wellbeing and create a stronger more resilient community.


Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health.

The Act-Belong-Commit guidelines for positive mental health provide a simple approach you can  adopt  to become more mentally healthy:

ACT "Do something" 

Keep active - physically, socially, mentally and spiritually. 

  • go for a walk or run
  • read a book
  • talk to someone 
  • meditate or pray 

BELONG "Do something with someone'

Keep connected - to friends, family and your community. 

  • join a book club
  • take a cooking class
  • go to community events
  • join a sports team

COMMIT "Do something meaningful" 

Do something meaningful, important and valuable to you. 

  • volunteer
  • learn something new
  • take a challenge
  • teach others
