It's World Mental Health Day! We know that exercise and being active is an important tool in supporting good mental health. If you're in Alice Springs then come join us at the Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre for the Stretch & Relax For Good Mental Health classes. There's still some spots left in both in the 10am and 12pm classes. Entry is free.

Regular exercise may alleviate symptoms of depression by:
• increasing energy levels
• improving sleep
• distracting from worries and rumination
• providing social support and reducing loneliness if exercise is done with other people
• increasing a sense of control and self-esteem, by allowing people to take an active role in their own wellbeing.
