Background: Physical activity can significantly improve physical health and clinical symptoms across a range of mental disorders. Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are ideally-placed to lead physical activity interventions for people with mental illness, but referral rates to AEPs are low. Encouraging mental health professionals to actively refer to AEPs may lead to significant physical and mental health benefits for people with mental illness.
