Move for Mental Health - Everybody Walk Across Pennsylvania!

Updated: Mar 17, 2023

The Healthy Franklin County behavioral health and physical activity task forces have been working together over the last several weeks to develop the Move for Mental Health awareness campaign. The goals of the campaign are to increase awareness of the benefits of physical activity as it relates to mental health and to promote existing community resources, programs and supports. Physical activity has an immediate positive impact on the brain, reducing stress and anxiety while improving focus and mood and has been shown to reduce the severity of depression and other mental illness. As part of the campaign, Healthy Franklin County is cross-promoting the Everybody Walks Across Pennsylvania free, 8-week walking program (April 10th – June 5th, 2023) by offering incentives to individuals who live and work in Franklin County to participate; the deadline to register for the walking program and incentives is March 27th!
