This service is available to all service users within inpatient care. The department has a fully equipped gym within St Georges Park as well as providing various exercise groups including walking, football, badminton, circuit training, health lifestyle and weight management.
The aim of the service is to provide therapeutic exercise to improve mental and physical illness and prevent/treat some of the physical side effects associated with antipsychotic medication.
We aim to engage service users in a structured exercise programme which will have a positive influence on physical health and promote positive health and lifestyle changes which can be continued independently after discharge.
