On Tuesday 1st November, representatives from Flaxman Sports Centre in Lambeth attended a mental health awareness meeting to discuss ways in which people with mental health issues could better access sport and fitness.
Staff delivered a presentation on the benefits that healthy living can have on emotional health, which can be achieved through participating in sport and fitness activities.
Emotional difficulties such as depression and anxiety are treated the same as physical ones and should be discussed with a GP.
