People who have serious mental illnesses often tend to neglect their overall health and nutrition and as a result are likely to develop multiple physical ailments. They are also at higher risk for developing significant psychiatric, social and cognitive disability.

Physical activity has the potential to improve the quality of life of people with serious mental illness in two ways – one, by improving physical health and two, by alleviating psychiatric and social disability.

Our main focus is to improve mood and promote well-being through a structured exercise programme, to motivate the patients and promote self-management in mental and physical health issues, to address impaired body awareness and reduce dissociation associated with poor mental health.
