Course Description: Physical activity (PA) can be therapeutic for individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) who generally have low PA and experience numerous lifestyle-related medical complications. Those with SMI are at increased risk of various physical comorbidities, such as respiratory disease, poor bone health, and cardiovascular disease. The current study conducted a meta-review of PA interventions and their impact on health outcomes for people with SMI, including schizophrenia-spectrum disorders, major depressive disorder (MDD), and bipolar disorder (BD). Researchers found that PA leads to improved depressive symptoms in MDD as well as improved cognition in schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the 3 aims of the study and the methods related to using PA as a treatment for SMI as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the 10 research recommendations with the identified areas recommended for clinical practice

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand EPA guidance on physical activity as a treatment for severe mental illness: a meta-review of the evidence and Position Statement from the European Psychiatric Association (EPA), supported by the International Organization of Physical Therapists in Mental Health (IOPTMH)
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to the benefits of PA for SMI coupled with the statistical findings from the accompanying article
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article to better understand the relationship between SMI and PA interventions, or for any missed questions
