Exercise & Mental Health

 

Mental health is a significant contributor to disability, and Australia has seen a rise in the prevalence of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Exercise & Mental Health

There is a strong connection between mental and physical health. Due to this, it is important to focus on holistic, multidisciplinary treatments to improve quality of life for those with mental health conditions. There have been large bodies of evidence demonstrating the positive effect that physical activity can have on mental health and exercise has been shown to effectively manage and reduce some mental health disorders.

Furthermore, regular and habitual exercise can prevent the onset of some disorders by providing benefits including overall happiness and wellbeing, as well as confidence and self-esteem.
