Just Move

Just Move (previously Up and About) is an exercise program for participants with lived experience of mental ill-health.

It is a structured exercise program run by Exercise Physiologists and Personal Trainers in a private gym facility to allow for maximum privacy and safety of all participants.

The sessions run once a week for one hour and consist of circuit-based movements that will be tailored to suit all ability levels.  Support workers or family members are encouraged to attend the sessions with the participants.  Once the participants are enrolled in the program they will receive support from the program manager which includes health coaching and regular check-ins to see how they are finding the exercise and to see if they have any concerns.

The program is open to any NDIS participant or person who is experiencing mental ill-health; all that is required is a referral form from a support coordinator, GP or a participant can self-refer.  Once the intake is complete the participant will receive a NDIS service agreement for a 12-month duration with programs then running on a term-by-term basis.

The program will run for 12 weeks from January through until March at the below locations with ongoing days and times to be confirmed.
