Bath Mind are here to support you in getting active this month with Movement May.
The power of sport and physical activity can be a powerful tool for all aspects of mental health. It can be used to raise awareness, tackle stigma around mental health, and support those of us with mental health problems to become more active and manage symptoms.
Getting active can:
- Reduce anxiety and stress
- Combat low mood and increase self-esteem
- Help you feel good on the inside and out
We know that it can be challenging to get moving and keep active whilst under COVID-19 outbreak measures, regardless of whether you consider yourself an ‘active’ person or not.
Bath Mind are here to support you in getting active this May with our new fundraising campaign Movement May. Through our COVID-19 appeal, we asked the community of B&NES to support us in continuing to deliver our vital and life-changing services within the local community. This month, we’re aiming to encourage supporters to keep active and create fun and enjoyable ways to move, all the while supporting better mental health for their local community.
Taking part can be as simple as taking our tips and advice on getting started, to joining in with one of our Movement May challenges.
