Mentally Healthy – Act Belong Commit
As of June 2019, Rossmoyne Senior High School signed up to become a part of the Mentally Healthy Schools program to promote the Act-Belong-Commit ethos throughout our whole school community. At Rossmoyne we believe that student and staff mental health and wellbeing are one of our biggest priorities, and that to work to the best of our ability, we need to keep mentally healthy.
Act-Belong-Commit is a mental health promotion campaign that encourages everyone to take action to protect and promote their own mental wellbeing. Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health. At Rossmoyne there are so many opportunities for our students to act, belong and commit, and we hope to highlight these events and activities throughout the year. Look out for Year Group Socials, Athletics Carnivals, Fundraising Activities, Competitions etc. and get involved in some way to boost your own wellbeing, like joining the school’s P&C.
We have chosen to partner with Act-Belong-Commit as their messages strongly align to the school’s iCARE values, especially the values of Integrity, Connection and Respect, which encourage our students to act with moral strength, form meaningful and authentic connections, and act for and with others with consideration and respect.
We hope by promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message around the school, it not only educates young people about what they can do to prevent the onset of mental illness, but also encourages them to participate in all the activities that are on offer to be active, join in lunchtime and after school groups, and do good things for others.
