Mental Health Today : People with mental health problems put off sport

le 20 juillet 2015

[Mental Health Today] New research from Mind has found that 80% of people with mental health problems who do not take part in sport, are put off because they feel self-conscious about their bodies.

Nearly 70% of people told Mind that they feel their mental health makes taking part too difficult as part of research ahead of the charity launching it's new 'Get Set to Go' programme to support 75,000 people with mental health problems to take up sport.
The programme, supported by Sport England and the National Lottery, will help people with mental health problems become more active through sports projects at eight local Minds. People taking part will receive one-to-one support from others with shared experiences, who understand the additional challenges a mental health problem presents to those who want to get active.
