Exercising for Mental Health

August 17, 2017

In support of the goals of National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, AAHP joins the effort to bring awareness to the challenges of minority mental health issues and to focus attention on an important component of mental health improvement: exercise. Mental health issues in minority communities are complex and the introduction of physical activity into the paradigm of improvement are new. Nevertheless, exercise has emerged as a viable, non-invasive solution to many mental health issues and is especially suited to the challenges faced by the Black community.
