Sheffield Mind and Body Project

Feeling good about your physical health can be a real boost to your mental health.

Sheffield Mind has been granted funding for three years (until 2017) to run the Sheffield Mind and Body Project through the Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities fund. The aim of the project is to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of people living in deprived and BME communities and the areas of greatest health inequalities in Sheffield. Courses and workshops seek to improve levels of physical activity, improve diet and self esteem, address stress and anxiety and promote relaxation, thereby increasing emotional resilience and reducing social isolation.

The groups are very informal and are designed to be welcoming, fun and inclusive. Some of the groups focus on mental wellbeing, others are designed to increase physical activity, some are in general to lead a healthier lifestyle and some are simply to engage in an activity you enjoy while meeting new people. Please see below for details of upcoming courses, or scroll down for a history of our recent work.

To book on any of our courses please contact us.
