Come down and learn how you can become a Youth Connector, some handy tips to keep you mentally healthy, eat some yummy food and enjoy the entertainment.
This brunch is also an opportunity to celebrate the contributions our existing Youth Connectors have made to help keep their peers and communities mentally healthy!
Act-Belong-Commit is a world-first community-based health promotion campaign that (a) encourages individuals to take action to improve their mental health and wellbeing, and (b) encourages and supports organisations that provide mentally healthy activities to promote participation in those activities.
This evidence-based campaign was developed primarily from research undertaken by a team at Curtin University into people’s perceptions of mental health and the behaviours they believed protected and promoted good mental health. That is, people will be more mentally healthy if they’re active, physically, socially, mentally and spiritually, belong to community groups and clubs and commit to challenges that provide meaning and purpose in life.
The success of the campaign has been recognised nationally and internationally, with the spontaneous uptake of the campaign across Australia and overseas.
WHEN: Wednesday 18 April, 11.30am - 2.00pm
WHERE: Atkinson Forum, Curtin University
