This report presents the results of a scoping exercise looking at how the Five Ways to Wellbeing have been used across the UK since their launch as part of the Foresight report in October 2008. 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 the new economics foundation (nef) as the result of a commission by Foresight, the UK government's futures think-tank, as part of the Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing. This report presents the results of a scoping exercise looking at how the Five Ways to Wellbeing have been used across the UK since their launch as part of the Foresight report in October 2008. The aims of this work are twofold:

  1. To develop an increased understanding about the scope and potentialof the Five Ways to Wellbeing as a tool to improve population mental health and wellbeing.
  2. To review how the Five Ways to Wellbeing are currently being used by local and national agencies to help identify future opportunities.
