Mind Your Heart

MYH Banner 2

People living with mental health problems often also suffer poor physical health. There has been considerable interest and research on this link recently and the reasons for it are thought to be complex.

Nevertheless, Mind Your Heart believes that there are actions we can take, changes we can make to the way we live, whatever our circumstances, which can improve our health.

Mind Your Heart is a project for Ceredigion in West Wales that aims to help people overcome these obstacles and improve their overall health.
