Exercise and Mental Wellness

It's sometimes hard to get motivated to exercise, but here's news that might move you:  research indicates that exercise reduces anxiety and improves mood!

The Mayo Clinic's article, "Depression and anxiety: exercise eases symptoms" explores the benefits of exercise for mental health and includes realistic tips to keep you inspired.

Looking for an opportunity to get moving?  Why not join us for the 4th Annual NAMI Walk to raise awareness of mental illness in Southwestern Pennsylvania? Opportunities exist to form a Walk team, join an existing Walk team or walk as an individual. For more information, contact the NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania office at 412-366-3788.

Visit the NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania website for more information on wellness and recovery!
