Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined forces to launch their new project ‘Heads Together’ on Monday 16th May 2016. The aim of the project is to bring together 8 leading mental health charities, raise awareness and end the stigma associated with mental health.
Duke McKenzie who provides our Boxercise sessions for Active Minds/Get Set To Go and two of the service users (Jade Jennings and Stephanie Woe) met the royals and put them to the test with some sparring.
More information on the project and all of the charities involved can be found at: https://www.headstogether.org.uk/about-heads-together/

To celebrate World Mental Health Day, Sport England and National Mind visited Duke’s Gym to make a film about the benefits of physical activity on mental health.
Our very own Peter Rogers (Active Minds) is the star of the film.
