Key role for Act-Belong-Commit in Mental Health Week

Mentally Healthy WA’s Act-Belong-Commit message with a special focus on suicide prevention was the official theme for Mental Health Week in October.

The Mentally Healthy WA campaign resulted from a Healthway initiated research project two decades ago and recent surveys show three in every four West Australians are aware of the positive mental health message Act-Belong-Commit

The campaign is funded jointly by Healthway and the WA Mental Health Commission. In addition, Healthway sponsored 80 projects to promote the Act Belong Commit message across the state last year alone, at a cost of over $1.8 million.
