Good for your body, good for your mind | ‘Let’s do this’ campaign launch

Everyone can benefit from taking simple steps to look after their mental health and wellbeing. Good mental health helps us relax more, achieve more, and enjoy our lives more, and there are lots of things we can do to keep on top of our mental health and prevent problems escalating, just as we would do with our physical health.

In line with the Physical Activity & Wellbeing legacy ambition for the Birmingham 2022 Games, which aims to “accelerate awareness and understanding of mental health and wellbeing issues”, this message of getting active to improve your mental wellbeing is what the Department of Health and Social Care want to promote. A number of resources have been created for use during the games, please find these below.

As well as posters and social media statics, there is an employer’s toolkit, to help encourage employees to improve their mental wellbeing through physical activity.

You can also find links to a number of resources including a BMI calculator, the active 10 app, couch to 5k and more here.
