Sport protects mental health of children who experience trauma

Last Updated: 2/12/2018

Taking part in sport protects children who are abused or neglected from developing mental health problems in later life, according to a major public health study. People who had adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) but regularly played sports as children were less likely to have a mental illness as an adult, the study found. People who had traumatic childhoods were also more likely to be mentally healthy if they took part in sport as adults. The study confirmed a strong link between ACEs, which include sexual and physical abuse, parental separation and living with domestic violence, and mental illness as an adult. It said people who had four or more ACEs were four times more likely to be receiving treatment for current mental illnesses and 10 times more likely to have self-harmed or felt suicidal than those who had experienced none.

Last Updated: 7/17/2017

Walking for Health project, Step It Up Highland have added two new case studies to their growing series. Both highlight how Health Walks play an important community development role helping people living in rural areas to become more active and socially connected. Case study 11 - Tackling social isolation Mallaig area Walking Group explains how the weekly Health Walk in Mallaig, Morar and Arisaig has brought people together. Rotating each week between the three areas gives everyone an opportunity to visit new locations. Car sharing is popular, along with a visit to a local café at the end of the walk. One 86-year-old walker said, “I am so much more confident now in my ability to walk and have discovered the joy of using walking poles. I would never have done this without the security of a led walk in the company of others.” Read more below:
