We support people with mental health challenges to become more physically active with other
Our exercise for mental health sessions supports people with mental health challenges to access physical activities and peer support with other like-minded people.
There's research saying that the warm feeling you achieve from physical activities releases happy chemicals in the brain. We also use physical activities to promote positive self-talk, which gives a sense of reward. We're ambitious to offer more activities such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Mobility and Active Stretch for stimulating our positive mental health.
Our service is led by a coordinator. He has fitness, health and marketing qualifications. Since 2012, David successfully ran many community groups, especially our Yate Active Wellbeing Group since 10 October 2013, on World Mental Health Day.
