The ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ 2008 are a set of evidence-based public mental health messages aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of the whole population. They were developed by NEF (New Economics Foundation) as the result of a commission by Foresight, the UK government’s futures think-tank, as part of the Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing. The NHS has also adopted these principles into their own Mental Health and Wellbeing campaign , where evidence suggests these are 5 steps you can take to improve your mental health and wellbeing.

‘Trying these things could help you feel more positive and able to get the most out of life’.

This NHS booklet is an excellent resource and guide, below are some of the links and content.
