Mental Health Awareness Week 2013

Let's Get Physical

Each May, as a Trust, we support Mental Health Awareness Week and this year's theme, which runs from 13-19 May, is physical activity and exercise. This week of activities will highlight the impact physical activity and exercise have on mental health and wellbeing.

Physical activity, including dance and other art forms, is often described as something we ‘ought to do’ to avoid developing health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. What's less often explained is the huge potential it has to enhance our happiness and quality of life and reduce mental illness. This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week aims to shift our motivation for physical activity to something we choose to do to increase our wellbeing.
