Physical and mental health are two sides of the same coin. Improving physical health can do a lot to improve mental wellbeing and can often bring positive change in people's outlook on life. It can help people with anxiety and depression and may even prevent such problems developing in the first place. It is therefore important to do what is possible to eat healthily and take enough exercise.

Sheffield Mind offers a range of services and support to enable people to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. The Sheffield Mind and Body Project runs a number of activities focused around wellbeing - click here to find out more.

We also believe that everyone can do a lot to improve their mental health and we promote self help and empowerment as a route to prevention and recovery - see our Self Help page for more information.

Sheffield Mind advocates a holistic approach to supporting people to reach their aspirations. An example of this is our Make it Work employment support project which works with people in employment who are experiencing stress and anxiety and other mental health difficulties.
