Movement and the Mind Virtual Conference Launched

Movement and mind

Thanks to the work of both business groups and celebrities, mental health is finally receiving the attention it deserves and rising up the business agenda. But it’s important not to lose site of the inextricable link between mental health and physical health.

Founded by Dr Lucy Loveday, Movement & the Mind is a story of lived experience, and the shared knowledge that movement in nature connects the mind, body and planet in unparalleled ways.

Dr Loveday will be reinforcing this link through the Movement and the Mind Virtual Conference on 18 June 2021.

Alongside experts, adventurers, advocates and leaders from across the disciplines of medicine, psychiatry, psychology, exercise physiology, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, neuroscience, mindfulness and movement, the conference sessions have been designed to enable attendees to:

  • Learn about the latest evidence for the benefits of physical activity for good mental health
  • Explore mindfulness for human performance and
  • Hear real-life stories of how moving in green, blue and built environments cultivates improved wellbeing and connection

The event is hosted by Active Devon, which is a community-focused, non-profit organisation dedicated to inspiring and supporting Devon to be active.

Active Devon has previously collaborated with Dr Lucy Loveday to support the emerging social prescribing agenda in the region. The organisation believes that movement is central to living healthier, happier, and more connected lives, regardless of age, ability, or background.

Profits generated by this event will support local initiatives using physical activity, sport, and movement to positively impact the mental health and wellbeing of people living in Devon.
