Physical activity can play an important role in building resilience and supporting mental health recovery, according to mental health charity, Mind.

The above findings are revealed in the Get Set to Go Programme
Evaluation Summary, a report on a landmark two year project to help people with mental health problems get active.

With help from Sport England and the National Lottery, the project has seen more than 3,500 people take part in physical activity projects across the country.

The project also showed that people who were physically active on a regular basis were more likely to experience better wellbeing.

Seeing the benefits of physical activity on mental health, those who took part have, on average, increased their physical activity by 1.3 days each week.
