Shire of Mundaring is a proud partner of Mentally Healthy WA and actively promotes the 'Act Belong Commit' mental health promotion campaign, which encourages individuals to take action to protect and promote their own mental wellbeing.

When we think about mental health, we often think of words and images associated with mental 'ill' health. Mentally Healthy WA aims to re-frame this perception to something more positive: we can all do things to strengthen and promote our own mental wellbeing and that of others.

It's as easy as A-B-C:  Act-Belong-Commit.

Act

Take a walk, read a book, do a crossword puzzle, dance, say g'day. Being active physically, socially and mentally helps us cope with stresses, build friendships and lift spirits. Make a list of things you enjoy and spend more time doing them!

Belong

Join a book club, a sporting team, a walking group or a cooking class. Be more involved in community organisations and attend community events. Hang out with people who share your values and interests. Belonging helps build friendships, creates opportunities for meaningful participation, strengthens communities and it simply feels good!

Commit

Make that extra 'commitment' to a hobby or a good cause. Help out a neighbour or volunteer for a good cause, be a coach or a mentor. Support your community clubs and groups. Try something challenging – learn a new skill. These activities give meaning to life.
