Tyneside & Northumberland Mind's Get Set to Go project has supported adults over the age of 18 living in Tyneside who have experienced mental health problems - such as depression, stress or anxiety – and supported them to join mainstream sports clubs, go to the gym or take up a new sport to keep active.


Physical Activity & Sports Group 

• A free support group to encourage, promote and take part in activities/sports of your choice

• To improve the effects of mild/moderate mental and physical health issues

• Reduce social isolation by making friends with those who want to achieve the same health goals

When and where?

The weekly group takes place on a Tuesday afternoon from 2-4pm at the Tyneside and Northumberland Mind Wellbeing Centre, Gateshead.
For further details contact the Get Set to Go Sports Coordinator.
