Physical activity and sport

Physical activity and sport is central to our mental wellbeing

Since 2009 when SAMH Ambassador Sir Chris Hoy launched our first campaign on physical activity and sport, we have been working to make sure everyone can experience the benefits that physical activity can bring to our mental health and wellbeing.

We know that there are a number of barriers that prevent people experiencing mental health problems from participating in physical activity including low energy and confidence, lack of support and motivation, and side effects of medication. Our work is centred around changing this so we can all experience the benefits of being active.
