We know physical activity can be an amazing way to support mental health. However, it isn’t helpful for everyone all the time. It’s important to recognise that some people can develop an unhealthy relationship with physical activity. Anyone can develop an unhealthy relationship with exercise. But this may be more likely if you have certain types of mental health problems.
Working with experts by lived experience we have developed resources and blogs (see below) to raise awareness of the importance of developing a healthy and balanced relationship with physical activity. These were launched during our ‘Developing a healthy relationship with physical activity’ campaign in January 2022.
We will be running communications over a four-week period launching on the 17 January to raise awareness of the importance of developing a healthy and balanced relationship with physical activity. This will include a series of events, social media activity and the launch of new resources.
