Mental Health Research - Exercise

Dr Lovell and Dr Kannis, from the University of the Sunshine Coast, are conducting research examining the prescription of exercise for patients with mental health challenges.

Although the potential benefits of exercise as a treatment for mental illness are well documented, research examining practical challenges of such interventions is sparse.

In light of the limited research in this area, this project attempts to further our current understanding of what mental health conditions are being treated or managed by exercise and what methods of exercise prescription are currently being used. Furthermore, this survey will also examine what issues are considered to be key road-blocks to the prescription of exercise for mental health by practitioners treating patients with mental health concerns.

Findings from this current project should assist practitioners, researchers, as well as policy makers, to design more appropriate initiatives utilising exercise in real world situations to help treat and manage mental illness.
