Words to Live By

Words to Live By is a collection of video stories produced by the Centre for Stories for Act Belong Commit and funded by Healthway.

The collection showcases the ways in which older Western Australians embrace the values of Act Belong Commit within their daily lives and champion positive mental health. These videos focus on four inspirational people who have chosen to stay active, to maintain connections with those around them, and to embark on new experiences and challenges.

See below to view these stories. Audio described versions of these videos are available here.Act Belong Commit Logo
