Belfast Strategic Partnership (BSP) has launched its Take 5 steps to wellbeing Toolkit. Take 5 steps to wellbeing is built on evidence based research carried out by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) that shows you can live up to 7.5 years longer if you build the following five activities into everyday life: Connect, Keep learning, Be active, Take notice and Give.

Funded by the Public Health Agency, the Toolkit has been developed by BSP’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Thematic Group (MHEW), a multi-sectoral partnership representing the community, voluntary, statutory and business sectors.  It includes a suite of resources aimed at individuals, families, practitioners, communities and organisations. Below you can download all of these resources, or you can log onto www.makinglifebettertogether.com to find out lots more about Take 5 and BSP.
