Up and About

Our new Up and About exercise program is offered free to those with a lived experience of mental illness across the greater Hobart region, Launceston, Devonport, Ulverstone and Burnie.

This exciting program sponsored by Sports Australia gives people an opportunity to be involved in exercise physiology groups, have access to health coaching, gyms, and loan of a Fitbit to increase motivation!
