How to…promote mental wellbeing

This resource has been designed for people and agencies wanting to actively promote and improve the mental wellbeing of their community.

This project has been led by the Public Mental Health Special Interest Group (SIG) of the UK Public Health Association (UKPHA) with part-funding from the Department of Health.

It is not intended to be a comprehensive mental wellbeing resource, which would need to encompass population level and socio-economic policy, instead it focuses on community level activity.
