Minding Our Bodies is a two-year project (2008-2010). Our goal is to increase capacity within the community mental health system in Ontario to promote active living and to create new opportunities for physical activity for people with serious mental illness to support recovery.
Our provincial mental health promotion program will serve as an “incubator” to help mental health service providers in Ontario, together with community partners, develop and deliver evidence-based physical activity programs, improve access to local resources, and promote social inclusion.
Minding Our Bodies is an initiative of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario, in partnership with YMCA Ontario and York University’s Faculty of Health, with support from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion through the Communities in Action Fund.
