A graphic produced by New Economics Foundation to illustrate the 5 ways to wellbeing

The Five Ways to Wellbeing is a set of evidence-based public mental health messages aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of the whole population. They were developed by NEF (the New Economics Foundation). The Five Ways to Wellbeing have been used across the UK since their launch in 2008. This provides a common language for FSC to communicate our contribution to Wellbeing.
