East of England Mental Health in Sport and Physical Activity Conference

This conference will provide learning and networking opportunities that are suitable for cross-sector colleagues interested in how sport and physical activity can be used to benefit people's mental health. Attendees will learn about why being physically active can benefit someone's mental health as well as improving understanding of how opportunities can be delivered in order to be inclusive to those living with poor mental health.

We will be joined by a range of guest speakers that will be discussing mental health in relation to sport and physical activity, this will include:

• the science behind the benefits of physical activity and mental health and why it's so important

• learning from lived experience from those that have experienced the mental health positives of participating in sport and physical activity

• examples of successful physical activity projects that have specifically targeted improvements in people's mental health within the region

• addressing some of the barriers to participation to people with mental health conditions and how they can best be supported

The presentations will be followed by a free lunch and an opportunity to connect with the event presenters to further learn about their offers as well as a chance to network with likeminded colleagues from our region.

*Please note this conference will run as a hybrid event; offering the opportunity to either attend online or in person. This booking is to attend the conference in person, if you would like to attend virtually please book here.*
