Physical Activity and Psychosis Podcast

There is an emerging role for exercise physiologists within the prevention and treatment of mental illness. Psychosis is a mental illness which is associated with a range of physical health co-morbidities, largely due to unhealthy lifestyles. This CPD course will provide an introduction to psychosis psychopathology, describe the current evidence around physical activity interventions, offer best-practise guidelines and practical implications when working with this population.

The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 10 September 2019.
