As an Act-Belong-Commit school, we are 'getting active' this August, by challenging teachers and students to make small changes each day this month that will have them feeling great.
Active August is Act-Belong-Commit’s new campaign, encouraging people across WA to get active for their mental health and well being. Not just being physically active but also socially, spiritually and mentally active.
The campaign aims to motivate and inspire people to take simple yet significant actions that can improve their mental health and help them form habits that can keep them mentally healthy in the long term.
Act-Belong-Commit’s Active August is one way to start changing the narrative when it comes to mental health, by shifting the focus from treatment of illness to the prevention, promotion and preservation of good mental health. This means developing, keeping or changing habits as we go through life to keep mentally healthy.
