Active Minds

Physical activity can improve mental health

Being physically active means sitting down less and moving our bodies more. There are many studies which have shown that doing physical activity can improve mental health. Getting active can reduce anxiety and stress, combat low mood and increase self-esteem, it makes you feel good inside and out.

We offer activity focused groups such as our Get Set to Go programmes, yoga and walking. They are easy to join so just get in touch.
