Physical fitness can significantly help those suffering with mental health issues, by reducing or negating the need for prescribed medications; and
People who suffer from chronic illness, might turn to physical fitness, which can help by reducing or negating some symptoms and lessen stress and pain that could require time off work.
We, the undersigned, the citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to recognize physical fitness as a form of treatment for physical injury and mental health issues. We request that physical fitness through a gym membership, personal training, and physiotherapy be made available through funding and specific programming to individuals suffering mental illness or chronic, life-altering disease or illness.
