How fitness can save lives.
CALM advocates discuss the link between fitness and mental health in new video series.
The inspiring stories of four people who turned to physical fitness to manage their mental health after their lives were impacted by suicide are being shared in a new video series from UK charity CALM and online fitness brand Level Fitness.
Through intimate interviews and first-hand accounts, the series explores the ways in which these four people have used exercise during difficult periods in their lives, both to improve their mental health and to become part of a community where they can talk openly about their feelings.
On average, 12 men take their own lives every day in the UK, and sporting communities can play an integral role in progressing the conversation around men’s mental health by providing an opportunity for men to talk openly with peers.
