Move it for Mental Health!

move it

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was estimated that one in four of us would experience a mental health problem every year - a statistic that is forecast to rise owing to the pandemic.

Poor mental health affects more people every year than cancer or heart disease.

Despite these high statistics there still remains a huge stigma around the subject.

That is why Mental Health UK are asking you and the nation, to Move it for Mental Health this September!

1. Choose your activity Running, walking, cycling, weightlifting, swimming, squats, stairs (the possibilities are endless!)

2.Set the target.e.g. 5k run every other day, 50 squats every day, 100 deadlifts every day, a marathon over a month, Lands End to John O’Groats over a month, 10,000 steps a day.

3.Register and fundraise for Mental Health UK as you go so that people affected by mental health problems receive support and help.
