In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it. Running can play a vital part in maintaining good mental health – it acts as an important mood stabiliser.

What is good mental health?

Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the way that you need and want to live your life.  But if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the way you’re frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with.  This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.
