How to keep mentally healthy

We all come from different places and diverse backgrounds. No matter where you are from, it’s important that we all choose to stay active, to stay closely connected to those around us, and that we embark on new experiences and challenges in the pursuit of more meaningful lives.

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

The Act Belong Commit guidelines below provide the foundations for how you can get on the front foot for good mental health.

Act: Do something

Keep active – mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, culturally…
