Escape reflects the extremes of a fast-paced modern life and the impact it can have on your mental health, in stark comparison to the unique environment offered by swimming.
This story features real women who have seen the positive effects of swimming in coping with their mental health issues. This comes following a new YouGov recently released which highlights swimming as key activity to help mental wellbeing, with over one million people with mental health conditions benefitting from the activity.
In addition, over half a million (492,000) British adults with mental health problems who ever swim say that they have reduced the number of visits to a medical professional regarding their mental health condition as a result of swimming.
And swimming has meant over 490,000 people have reduced or no longer take medication for their mental health condition.
"1.4 million adults believe that swimming has significantly reduced their symptoms of anxiety and / or depression"
