Mentally Healthy Waroona – Act, Belong, Commit


Residents living in the region are set to benefit from a series of place activation and wellness initiatives with the Shire of Waroona recently partnering with Mentally Healthy WA to promote the Act, Belong-Commit message.

The Act, Belong-Commit campaign encourages everyone to do things in their everyday lives to keep mentally healthy. It’s as easy as A-B-C:

Act: Keep physically, mentally, socially and spiritually active: take a walk, read a book, do a crossword, dance, play cards, stop for a chat

Belong: Join a club, take a cooking class, be more involved in groups and go along to community events

Commit: Take up a cause, help a neighbour, learn something new, set yourself a challenge, help out at the school

Act, Belong-Commit Initiatives, which will be delivered in partnership with community, will include activities such as outdoor cinemas, yoga or meditation, interactive artworks and long table dinners.

Initiatives will be rolled out across all localities in the Shire, including Preston Beach, Herron, Waroona and Lake Clifton. The project, which aims to improve individual wellness and community cohesion, is funded by the WA Primary Health Alliance - Waroona Alliance Against Depression.

For more information or to get involved, contact Kelly Shipway – Place and Community Development Coordinator at the Shire of Waroona on 08 9733 7810.
