Dr Shahnaz Hassan is a psychiatrist at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust and helped us co-launched Run Talk Run earlier this month to help people to get active and talk about mental health. She explained to us that it can be daunting to get active especially if you are experiencing difficulties with your mental health, and this is a great way for people to benefit both their physical and mental health in a supportive environment. It’s also a good way to help people get back on their feet, especially as social restrictions due to Coronavirus have meant reduced activity levels for many people. It also provides an alternative to those who may not be comfortable going back to the gyms just yet.
