Sydney, northern beaches, NSW October 2011 – Community based fitness and health club Everybody Fitness is giving great support to Mental Health Month in October by hosting outdoor boxing classes.

Everybody Fitness Director, Susan Whitby, who is studying the positive effects of exercise on mental health will be taking the class and is excited to be able to create awareness and be able to provide a service that will give great benefit to those suffering from mental health issues.

The only ask from participants is a gold coin donation with all funds raised during the month to be given to the Mental Health Association of NSW.

“With 20 per cent of Australians suffering from a mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress our aim is to alert people to the large volume of information which proves that exercise is an effective solution,” said Whitby.

“By hosting the classes we are encouraging anyone to come along to see and feel the positive effects of exercise on their own mental health.”

Classes will be held every Monday in October at 6pm at Collaroy Beach.

Formerly known as Mental Health Week NSW, the campaign was extended to the whole month of October in 2010 to reflect the campaign's importance given the recorded number of mental health cases is dramatically on the rise.

Mental Health Month is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held in October each year and is funded by NSW Health. Its main aim is to promote social and emotional wellbeing to the population in this state by encouraging people to maximise their health and increasing mental health literacy.

The aim of Mental Health Month this year is to encourage participants to take a holistic view of health and wellbeing. A person’s overall wellbeing can encompass not just their mental health, but also their physical health, social health, spiritual health and community health.
