November 21, 2017

“Physical activity has been shown to be effective in alleviating mild-to-moderate depression and anxiety. Current physical activity guidelines advise at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week to promote mental and physical health, yet many of those surveyed weren't meeting these recommendations,” Carol Janney, PhD, of Michigan State University, said in a press release. “Offering physical activity programs inside the mental health clinics may be one of many patient-centered approaches that can improve the mental and physical health of patients.”
