ABC for Mental Sundhed

Denmark

In 2014 Denmark became the first country outside of Australia to implement Act-Belong-Commit. The messages were translated and adjusted to fit into a Danish context and the campaign is now known as ABC for mental sundhed (The ABC of mental health). In 2016 Denmark established a partnership between municipalities and organisations to be able to communicate the message in different arenas and create settings that give people the opportunity to engage in mental health promoting activities. The partnership is coordinated by the Danish National Institute of Public Health, which is embedded in the University of Southern Denmark in Copenhagen. The project is still developing and the partnership now includes 8 organisations and 7 municipalities.

ABC for Mental Sunnhet

Norway

In late 2016 public health professionals in Norway followed suit from their Danish neighbours and adopted the Act-Belong-Commit as the national mental health promotion strategy for Norway. In the past 12 months, the six staff working on Act-Belong-Commit in Norway has been building a solid foundation to network and spread the message.

The Faroe Islands

In 2016 The Council for Public Health in the Faroe Islands invited Dr. Rob Donovan to present the Act-Belong-Commit concept at their yearly Public Health Conference. In the aftermath of the conference, the Council decided to adapt the concept. Early 2017 the initial work began, and Act-Belong-Commit is now a health promotion strategy working on national level on the Faroes. The project has developed into a partnership with 18 municipalities, organisations and associations with the principal objective to facilitate mental health and awareness among the population on the Faroe Islands.
