What is Act-Belong-Commit?

Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health. The A-B-C guidelines for positive mental health provide a simple approach everyone can adopt to become more mentally healthy. These volunteer awards aim to celebrate and appreciate the tireless efforts from all volunteers involved in the Avon Descent that uphold the messages of health and happiness.

ACT: Keep active in as many ways as you can -physically, socially, mentally and spiritually. BELONG: Keep connected to friends and family; get involved in groups, join in local community activities. COMMIT: Commit to a cause; become a volunteer; learn a new skill; or take up a challenge yourself.
