In 2015 Centre for Thriving Places worked with Bristol Public Health to adapt our wellbeing materials to prison life.
We worked extensively with the current and ex prisoners, and the result was a unique adaptation of our pre-existing wellbeing resources. Plan B: Five Ways to Prison Wellbeing is a booklet designed to offer prisoners simple ways to find wellbeing whilst in a prison cell.
The result was a unique adaptation of the very well researched 5 Ways to Wellbeing – Plan B: 5 ways to prison wellbeing – a booklet designed to offer prisoners simple ways to find wellbeing whilst in a prison cell.
Plan B takes the theoretical understanding of the wellbeing benefits of the 5 ways – Connect, Learn, Be Active, Take Notice and Give, and adapts them to be achievable and beneficial even for those confined to cells for up to 22 hours per day.
Plan B consists of 5 B‘s:
Look after your Body
Exercise your Brain
