Invigorate – activities to improve mental health & well-being

Back to Activities

The 'Invigorate' programme provides weekly low cost and free activities specifically for mental health service users and adults wishing to improve their well-being through exercise.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • exercise has been shown to improve mental health through the release of the happy hormone, endorphins;
  • it can also help clear your mind and give you an energy boost;
  • you will meet and get to chat to others who may be experiencing the same things as you.


What to expect

The Invigorate programme is a range of free and low-cost activity sessions aiming to help anybody who is experiencing anxiety, depression or other mental ill health. Most of the sessions take place near the city centre. A trainer will be present at all sessions to help encourage you to be physically active and to have a go.

Activities on offer include:

  • Multi-sport sessions
  • Tai chi
  • Yoga for Health
  • Wellbeing walks
  • Guided walks around Cambridge University Botanic Garden

Some of the sessions are free to attend and others have a small charge. You are welcome to bring friends, family or support workers with you to any of the activities – they will need to pay the same as you do, if there is a charge.

Visit the website for more information about the activities and how to book your place.
