Exercise for Mental Health

  • Exercise for Mental Health

    There is a lot of research to show that exercise and physical activity can improve Mental Health. However, we at ‘Exercise for Mental Health’ recognise that for someone with mental health difficulties there may be barriers to becoming more active. Barriers such as anxiety, lack of motivation or even financial implications can prevent someone from doing one of the very things that can help them feel better.

    Exercise for Mental Health can:

    • Meet with individuals in a safe environment to discuss what they might like to do and what prevents them from doing it.
    • Provide a volunteer to as a befriender and support individuals to get out and be more active. (This may be simply going for a walk or accompanying them to an exercise class).
    • Arrange various taster sessions with different groups, clubs or gyms so that individuals can find what works for them.
    • Arrange small client group activities in consultation with our service users.

    We also have Facebook and Instagram pages both can be found @exerciseformentalhealth which provides information, motivation, reassurance and links to other useful resources.
