Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week 2013 Physical Activity and Exercise.

Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 13-19 May and is themed around physical activity and wellbeing. Its run by the Mental Health Foundation.

Physical activity 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.

The success of Mental Health Awareness Week is down to the generous and enthusiastic support the Mental Health Foundation gets from organisations and individuals who publicise the week, organise activities and events, and hopefully have some fun as well.
