HOW YOU CAN HELP
Stand Tall is an 8-week physical activity and wellbeing programme targeting 14-25 year olds who are both inactive and are known to suffer with a mental health condition, with the aim of reducing the burden on the NHS.
Workshops provide wellbeing education and practical support alongside physical activity to keep young people healthy, physically and mentally.
The programme has been made possible as a result of our partnership with West Suffolk Council, The West Suffolk Health Alliance, Suffolk County Coumcil’s Public Health and Babergh District Council.
Covers a wide range of mental health conditions:-
- Social disconnection
- Low Self Esteem
- Overweight or obesity

Testimonials from some of our Stand Tall clients.
Katie has recently completed a Stand tall course:
“The wellbeing sessions and physical activity sessions were good, the people were friendly and I know now what needs of mine that are not being met.”
Katie has now joined her local centre and is participating in classes and gym sessions. She has also started using the personal training option that is available to help her gain more confidence in the gym.
CHLOE HAS RECENTLY COMPLETED A STAND TALL COURSE
“I found it an easy way to talk about subjects openly and you’re not judged.
I feel I have more knowledge on wellbeing in general and use it in the future.
Educationally also gives good suggestions to improve a particular struggle makes things easy to talk openly about.
I like the way the physical activity sessions are run but also a good opportunity to exercise. Boxercise is a good way to express myself.”
HOW YOU CAN HELP
To continue with this much-needed programme, we need additional funding, to be able to offer more classes for more people with more long-term health conditions.
The programme has already achieved positive outcomes, in terms of client’s mental and physical wellbeing, however, we can do more.
