Get Set to Go

The programme aims to improve the lives of people who have mental health problems through access to sport in their communities.

About This Programme

The programme works in three ways:

  • If you live in one of the eight areas (see below) where our local Minds offer Get Set to Go you can sign up to get support to increase your activity levels and find the right activity or sport for you. We're also working with the sport and leisure sector in these areas to see how we can remove the barriers to particpation we can expereience becuase of a mental health probelm.
  • We've recently produced new information that explains the benefits of physical activity for mental and physical health - and explores some of the common barriers with ideas for overcoming them.
  • If you live outside of the eight Get Set to Go areas you can join our Elefriends community. It's a safe and supportive online community where you can get support and motivation to be active.

There is also the Get Set to Go website which features motivational stories and practical ideas to help you get started with physical activity and join the conversation using the #GetSetToGo tag on Twitter and Instagram.
