What is Act-Belong-Commit?

Created Thursday, 21 August 2014 in News

Act-Belong-Commit is a mental health promotion campaign that encourages individuals to take action to protect and promote their own mental wellbeing.

 

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...

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

You can use the following features on the Act-Belong-Commit website to improve your mental health:

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...
