ABC Framework for a Mentally Healthy Elon
Inspiring individuals to be active, resilient and mentally healthy citizens engaged in meaningful and purposeful commitments within their communities and extending into the global context.
ACT – BELONG – COMMIT
Adaptable public health framework to inspire mental wellness within a community through positive behaviors and habits.
The Act-Belong-Commit campaign is evidence-based incorporating extensive research that engaging in activities within each of these behavioral domains provides positive mental health benefits, builds resilience, and enhances well-being (Donovan & Anwar-McHenry, 2014).
- ACT (do something): Keep active in as many ways as you can – physically, socially, mentally, culturally and spiritually.
- BELONG (do something with somebody): Keep connected to friends and family; get involved in groups; join in local community activities.
- COMMIT (do something meaningful): Commit to a cause; become a volunteer; learn a new skill; take up a challenge.
