We will once again be giving schools and youth organisations the opportunity to win a library of wellbeing books in our Wellbeing Challenge 2020!
This interactive competition encourages young people and their communities to think about their mental health; it’s based around the Five Ways to Wellbeing recommended by the NHS.
Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Give.
The idea is for schools and youth organisations to come up with activities which follow each of the five steps to wellbeing, take photos of these activities happening and share them on social media.
Interested in taking part in 2020?

The five steps to mental wellbeing
Connect – connect with people around you: family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Spend time developing these relationships.
Be active – take a walk, go cycling or play football. Find an activity you enjoy and make it part of your life.
Keep learning – learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and confidence.
Give to others – even the smallest act can count, whether it’s a smile, a thank you or a kind word.
Take notice – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
