New resource: Keeping mentally healthy in retirement

Created Thursday, 15 June 2017 in News

Retirement is an exciting chapter in your life! There is more time to do the things you enjoy, spend time with family and friends, explore different hobbies, and set yourself new, meaningful challenges.

In saying that, any life change that you go through can be unsettling and bring about uncertainty which may impact your mental wellbeing. We have released a new resource encouraging retirees, and those who are transitioning into retirement, to boost their mental health and well-being through a few simple steps.


Act: Do some gardening, get to know your neighbour, dance, call a friend, read a book, listen to music or go for a walk around your local park.

Belong: Spend time with family and friends, join an acting or singing group or explore your local community garden

Commit: Learn a new instrument, language or skill, volunteer in an area that has always interested you, adopt or foster an animal or create a new home improvement project.

Standing Strong Together: Aboriginal Act-Belong-Commit logo shared across WA

Mentally Healthy WA this week released an Aboriginal logo and slogan for use state-wide. The adaptation of the well-known Act-Belong-Commit message is designed for use by Aboriginal partner groups who want to promote social and emotional wellbeing in communities across WA, and for organisations who sponsor or support events run by Aboriginal groups.

The logo and slogan, ‘Standing Strong Together’ were developed on the traditional land of the Ngarluma People alongside Elders, local Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Roebourne. The project looked at how the Act-Belong-Commit campaign could be culturally adapted for Aboriginal people. Read more...
