Mentally Healthy WA

Mentally Healthy WA

Mentally Healthy WA – Act-Belong-Commit is one of our exhibitors at the WIMWA 2015 Summit

Act-Belong-Commit was developed primarily from research undertaken by Curtin University into people’s perceptions of mental health and the behaviours they believed protected and promoted good mental health.

The A-B-C guidelines for positive mental health provide a simple approach that we can adopt to become more mentally healthy:

  • Act: keep mentally, physically, socially and spiritually active: take a walk, say g’day, read a book, do a crossword, dance, play cards, stop for a chat…
  • Belong: join a book club, take a cooking class, be more involved in groups you are already a member of, go along to community events…
  • Commit: take up a cause, help a neighbour, learn something new, take on a challenge, volunteer…
