SCANDINAVIAN countries often lead social policy-making, but Denmark has taken cues from WA by adopting the state’s Act-Belong-Commit campaign.

Based on research by Curtin University, Act-Belong-Commit encourages people to stay mentally healthy by getting involved in physical, social, and spiritual activities.

Acting manager Bruno Faletti says the campaign is spreading around the world because it’s got simple advice which rings true for everyone.

“The campaign messages are quite universal, they’re not something that’s specifically cultural to Australia — that’s why we’ve had some activity in Fiji, activity in Japan, in Norway, and even in Mongolia,” Mr Faletti said.
