Keeping the Body in Mind: Exercise Physiology Services within a Community-based Early Psychosis Treatment Program

Dr Simon Rosenbaum

People with first episode psychosis (FEP) are prone to significant weight gain and metabolic abnormalities in the early stages of treatment putting them at significant risk of developing physical co-morbidities, including type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. These co-morbidities reduce quality of life and life expectancy within this population.

Despite known benefits of regular exercise including anxiolytic and anti-depressive effects, very low treatment adherence within FEP programs limits the effectiveness of exercise as a potential intervention. Determining the characteristics of FEP patients who frequently participate in a facilitated exercise program may assist in the development of strategies aimed at improving adherence. To determine the characteristics of frequent users of a facilitated exercise program.
