Story

SAMH are dedicated to supporting and improving the mental wellbeing of everyone in Scotland.

Being physically active is proven to protect mental wellbeing so by taking part and fundraising for SAMH in the Pedal for Scotland, you are not only looking after your own mental wellbeing, but also taking steps to improve Scotland's mental health.

SAMH have recently launched Scotlands Sports and Physical Activity Charter, designed to use the power of physical activity and sport to create positive lasting change in mental health and wellbeing.

One SAMH supporter who saw the benefits of physical activity on his mental wellbeing said "My mental health deteriorated after being diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) caused by a football injury. Unable to play football and get active the way I was used to whilst trying to manage my physical pain; I started to feel suicidal and was later diagnosed with depression at 21.

My doctor suggested I try to get active again in some way, and this is where my recovery really started.

Through walking and going to the gym, I was able to set and achieve my goals giving me great focus and motivation. The reassurance and support I received from my gym gave me such confidence to keep going."
