Mental Health Awareness Week 2013

Mental Health Awareness Week 2013 Lets Get Physical

'Let's Get Physical' was the theme of 2013's Mental Health Awareness Week, which ran from 13-19 May.

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.
