What the research says…
Find out about the scientific evidence behind the wellbeing strategies suggested in our lessons.
Behavioural activation is a well-researched strategy for boosting mood, and can even treat depression. It involves engaging in positive, fulfilling or healthy activities which can make you feel good, and therefore make you more likely to continue participating in those activities.
