Project Outline:

To alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression, inclusion of exercise in routine psychological treatment is very effective. However, it is difficult to motivate patients to exercise regularly, as motivational impairments are often concomitant with mental health conditions. Goal motivation gives people a sense of purpose and direction. This project consists of a series of subsequent phases for ongoing community-level study investigating how goal setting strategies assist people with mental health issues to regularly participate in physical activities to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
