Take Charge! Program
Community-Based Exercise for Youths and Adults Living with Mental Illness
Research has confirmed exercise helps people manage and work toward recovery from mental illness. Mental illness has emerged as a national issue, and in many places, local communities are working to help people living with mental illness through Take Charge!
Take Charge! is a free referral-based program that gives access and support to engage in exercise here at Loftus for 60 days. This includes 5 appointments with a Club Coach to develop a Personalised Exercise Program to ensure the Health Club is as comfortable as possible. Ongoing access to the Health Club can be negotiated on a co-contribution basis dependant on a persons financial situation.
Referrals can be sourced by your preferred Health Professional, such as your GP, Psychiatrist or Psychologist.
