Event Details

The Mental Health and Physical Activity Roundtable is intended for those working in the community mental health and physical activity sectors to exchange ideas and knowledge about initiatives to improve accessibility to physical activity opportunities for people with serious mental illness. The roundtable aims to:

 

1. Demonstrate the connection between mental health and physical activity.

2. Raise awareness of the important role that people with lived experience of mental illness can play in planning and delivering physical activity programs and the benefits of engagement.

3. Empower community mental health staff with tools and approaches to encourage movement along the physical activity continuum.

4. Share lessons learned from the Minding Our Bodies physical activity phase.

5. Showcase successful models that build bridges between the mental health and physical activity sectors.

6. Raise awareness of services and start to weave connections for greater partnerships to be built between physical activity and mental health groups (e.g., internships for students, shared facilities).

 

The agenda will include a panel of consumer-survivor peer leaders, a keynote from researchers at the University of Toronto, highlights of key physical activity training tools and options, a showcase of successful program models in the community mental health sector and an interactive cross-sectoral discussion to develop new ideas to overcome barriers and to bridge accessibility gaps.
