Everyone has a different understanding of the world and this plays a crucial part in how we behave, make decisions and form opinions of our health. There is lots of evidence to suggest that Faith plays a significant role in empowering people to enhance their own wellbeing and act as an aid for recovery for mental illness. With this in mind, this gives us hope for all.
At Our Minds Matter we work with faith groups to promote wellbeing and recognise faith as a powerful tool for mind, body and soul. In particular we pay attention to the five ways to well-being and how they can be
utilised to enhance positive health.
Every individual has a social identity and we belong to different groups, this can be made up of our environment and our heritage. As a result it can lead us doing things in a particular way and can be seen as a tradition for some. There are many positive outcomes that come about from this and can be seen to be perceived as culture.
At Our Minds Matter we work to encourage people from different backgrounds to stay connected and get active in their own communities, learn from each other, share with one another and take notice. These are the five ways to well-being.
