SHAPE stands for ‘Supporting Health And Promoting Exercise’ which is what this 12 week programme is aiming to do. SHAPE has been designed for people with psychosis and bipolar disorder under the care of Worcestershire Health Care Trust Mental Health Services who want to get fitter and healthier. SHAPE aims to help people maintain or lose weight, stop smoking, start exercising and introduce healthier eating and to support people to achieve personal health goals.
