MIND 'Get Active' Worthing
Staff from the Environment Agency and the mental health charity MIND are working together in West Sussex to offer regular angling events for participants of MIND's 'Get Active' programme.
These events usually take place a local coarse fishery, with Environment Agency staff present to offer angling coaching and support. Although angling is one of a number of activities ( e.g. walking, gym, badminton, ten-pin bowling) featured in the Get Active programme, the organisers believe that angling offers a unique combination of positive outcomes for MIND clients.
