1. What is this about? Our Nutrition & fitness support programme helps patients with low levels of physical activity and excess body weight who have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder or recurrent depression. The service aims to advise and assist each individual to develop skills that will help them change their unhealthy lifestyle, as evidence suggests that such a lifestyle often leads to obesity and chronic metabolic diseases. This is an important and usually neglected problem that often becomes an additional burden to the already difficult lives of patients with bipolar disorder and recurrent depression. 2.
