Anglesey Running Group Tackling Mental Health Problems

PEOPLE on Anglesey living with mental health problems have welcomed a new running group which is helping them manage their anxiety, low mood and self-esteem.

The 'Couch to 5k' running group was established by Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board’s Anglesey community mental health team with the aim of breaking a cycle of mental illness and physical ill health.

The Anglesey-based running group was set up by Hannah Jones, a community mental health nurse, who is a keen runner with the health board's running club, the Betsi Runaways.
