The Picture of Health: a community-led health film

The Picture of Health highlights community-led health activity in four communities in Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh, Isle of Bute and the Scottish Borders.

The film tells us about the health benefits of intergenerational work in the Mearns and Coastal Healthy Living Initiative; the organisation of community participation for health activity through the Eyemouth Healthy Living Group; how the Pilmeny Development Project’s Men’s Health Group in Leith has transcended cultures and enhanced mental health and well being; and how young people have used Bute Healthy Living Initiative as a stepping stone to training and articulating their particular needs, and how the Healthy Living Initiative has developed a social enterprise trading arm.

The film also features some of the CHEX team who talk about CHEX’s role in promoting community development approaches and supporting community-led health organisations and their public sector partners in developing and sharing good practice to build the evidence base for community-led health.
