for better mental health

Get Set to Go Results

With support from Sport England and the National Lottery, Get Set to Go has been helping people with mental health problems get active.

Since 2015, Get Set to Go has seen 3,585 people with mental health problems take part in specially designed physical activity projects. Delivered in communities across England by eight local Minds, participants received group and one-to-one support and took part in a range of activities.

Evaluating the programme

An evaluation team worked with over 1,000 Get Set to Go participants to track their progress, making this the largest ever study of its kind.

The findings show that physical activity has an important role to play in building resilience and supporting mental health recovery.
