Story

Physical activity has been proven to boost mood and reduce feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. This idea is at the heart of the Healthy Minds programme, which helps University of Bristol students experiencing mental health difficulties to get more active and maintain this behaviour in a supported, friendly environment. The three-month user-led programme includes sessions with an activity mentor, a tailored activity plan and support for future health maintenance, as well as access to a range of classes, clubs and sporting opportunities.

The core programme, delivered by the Division of Sport, Exercise and Health at the University of Bristol, has yielded clinically significant improvements in wellbeing amongst participants: most recently, a 49% positive increase among those completing the programme. With the help of donations from generous supporters, Healthy Minds will be able to help more students take positive steps to improve the way they feel through physical activity and sport.

Seven inspiring University of Bristol alumni, students and staff are running the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon in support of Healthy Minds. Every pound they raise will help the programme to grow, thrive and support more young people. Will you show your support by making a donation today?
