background of five ways to wellbeing
Background of “Five Ways to Wellbeing”
  • There has been longstanding concern and interest in promoting public health.
  • Some progress has been made on physical health promotions – diet, exercise, smoking cessation as well as the ‘5 a day’ for physical health being in the public consciousness.
  • But how do you promote mental health and wellbeing? What do you say? Could there be a ‘5 a day’ for mental health?
background of five ways to wellbeing6
Background of “Five Ways to Wellbeing”
  • The Government Office of Science commissioned the new economics foundation (nef) to conduct a comprehensive review of what people could do that promote their mental health and wellbeing i.e. evidence-based actions or behaviours.
  • Guidance on ‘The 5 ways to wellbeing’ was developed and published in the Foresight report on Mental Capital and Wellbeing (2008)1 but there was little follow up or work on ‘getting the message across’.
  • The Boorman review of wellbeing in the NHS workforce (2009), illustrated both grounds for concern and the importance of adopting a proactive stance towards the health and wellbeing of health care workers.
