About

Building on the success of Moving Mountains 2015 and 2016, the Moving Mountains 2018 Conference will focus on the theme of Mental Health and the Power of Exercise.

The Conference will hear stories of mental health sufferers and chronic illness sufferers with mental health conditions. It will also hear from those who care for mental health sufferers with or without chronic conditions about the ways in which their role as carer impacts on their own mental health. 

It will then address the power of physical activity for both physical and mental wellbeing through medical experts’ contributions by sharing their experiences and evidence-based programmes with us — Mens sana in corpore sano as the ancient Romans would say.  Moving Mountains 2018 social card

The Conference will end with a panel comprising all the speakers and medical experts discussing questions put to them by the audience.

This conference is particularly suited to healthcare professionals and practitioners. It is also relevant to mental health sufferers with or without chronic conditions and to their carers. We firmly believe it is also of interest to the fitness and leisure industry and the various charitable organisations dealing with mental health.
