Mental Health

In Australia, 1 in 5 will be affected each year by a mental illness. There are several mental health conditions of which Depression, Anxiety and PTSD are the most common. Exercise is not only good for your physical health but also your mental health. Research supports that exercise stimulates chemicals in the brain that improve your mood, helping fight stress and symptoms associated with Depression and Anxiety.

Did you know that there is no immunity to mental illness and it is more common than you think with 45% of Australians experiencing some mental health concern during their lifetime?

How Allied Exercise Physiologists can help:

Our team of Exercise Physiologist’s help you de-stress by prescribing exercises that are aligned with your goals. Exercise as a form of therapy for mental health conditions is a key treatment modality which is becoming more commonly prescribed by GP’s and Psychiatrists due to its non-invasive nature, accessibility and success in reducing symptoms. One on one training with our Exercise Physiologists means you are not alone, and we 100% understand all the symptoms of mental illness as well as the science and research behind the types of exercise activities that yield the best results.
