Up and Running? Report


This report was commissioned in the light of evidence which reveals how GPs respond to depression, and their attitudes towards those responses.

It outlines the benefits of using exercise therapy in cases of mild or moderate depression, the obstacles to its more widespread use, and how these obstacles might be overcome. The aim of Up And Running? is to promote exercise therapy for mild or moderate depression as a realistic and readily available tool for GPs, and a genuine option that patients can both understand and choose for themselves.
