Abstract
Background: It was discovered in 2020 that at least 52.9 million individuals in the United States had a mental illness diagnosis. These individuals are commonly affected by decreased motivation, feelings of hopelessness, low self-esteem, loss of meaning, and feeling of anxiousness which further impact their daily performance. Physical exercise has been linked to increases in physical and psychological wellbeing in individuals with mental health diagnoses. Methods: The purpose of this analysis was to critically appraise level 1 articles published in the last 5 years to discover the effectiveness of exercise interventions on symptom management for increased participation in daily roles for individuals with a diagnosis of a mental illness. Results: The analysis found that exercise interventions were more effective than control intervention in reducing severity of mental health symptoms. Improvement was seen in self-reported mental health post exercise.
