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:
