Price: £95.00 £55.00
Promoting Physical Well-being in Mental Health and Learning Disabilities is a training resource about reducing physical health inequalities. This pack will enable you to set up and run a healthy living group that will be fun and interactive for community groups and individuals.
Author(s): Anne Ellison, Tony Dwyer and Mark Hardcastle

This training pack is for those who wish to set up and run a healthy living group that will be fun and interactive for individuals and groups, including adults with learning difficulties and those with mental health problems in community, residential or inpatient settings. Possible outcomes for service users include improving physical activity, weight management, healthy eating, self-esteem, confidence and social inclusion.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and physical exercise is challenging for anyone, but healthy eating and exercise education offered through a group setting enables service users to share ideas, skills, common problems and issues.

This pack and the accompanying materials can be used and adapted to suit all purposes, whether your plans are a temporary short-term group, long-term continuous group, in an inpatient setting or a community setting.



Support workers, occupational therapists, community psychiatric and learning disability nurses, community support groups, carers, volunteers and service users.
