Mind’s North West Physical Activity & Mental Health Network

Welcome to Mind’s North West Physical Activity & Mental Health Network



National mental health charity, Mind, recognises the power of sport and physical activity to raise awareness, tackle mental health stigmas and support those of us with mental health problems to become more active.

To help professionals, organisations and individuals leverage the benefits of sport and physical activity in their communities, Mind has launched their Regional Network programme.

Merseyside Sports Foundation is the Hub (lead organisation) for the Regional Network in the North West of England. We’re committed to connecting people and expertise, to make sport and physical activity support for mental health even stronger in the region.

Connect with like-minded organisations

A number of key organisations, including the local Mind networkPublic Health England, Edge Hill University, MSP and other Active Partnerships in the North West, are already collaborating on a range of specifically-targeted projects.
