Get Active to Support your Mental Health

Helping those in Hertfordshire to find the most appropriate activities to support their mental health. Find your nearest, targeted activity below.

We recognise the difficulties in finding physical activities to support one’s mental health. Whether you yourself are looking to join an activity, or if you are a professional needing guidance to know where to signpost someone, our interactive map below will be a useful starting point.

Find our interactive map to search through the activity provision across Hertfordshire with a focus on supporting mental wellbeing. You can find locations, prices, contacts and more. You’ll find details on specific criteria for joining sessions e.g., gender-specific, age-specific, SEN and neurodivergent provision, or suitability for certain mental health conditions.

Certain activities are provided online or across several districts and therefore, not included in the interactive map. Please see below for further activities that could be the perfect boost to your mental wellbeing:
