Move your mind: mental health awareness week 2023

This Mental Health Awareness week we want to raise awareness of the positive effect exercise has on mental health.

We ran a survey with our members and 77% told us that regular exercise improves their mental health, this increased to 84% for people suffering with anxiety or depression.

Teaming up with people who are passionate about mental wellbeing and mental health specialists at Mental Health UK, we aim to help get more people moving to benefit their minds.
