Re-Energise aims to enable people to lead more active, fulfilling and happier lives, by:
- enabling people to be more physically active
- creating opportunities for people to develop stronger social networks
- reducing levels of depression, anxiety and stress
- Focusing on long-term lifestyle changes rather than a short-term, quick-fix approach.
- Increased physical activity reduces the causes of mental and physical health problems.
- A holistic approach will reduce levels of long-term conditions, stress and depression, and reduce mortality rates.
- Reducing these effects will reduce demand for clinical services, including prescribing rates, primary care and hospital admissions.
What difference does it make?
