It leads to a significant improvement in maximal exercise capacity and aerobic capability without concomitant deterioration of markers of suicidality.

Offering this popular mode of exercise to these patients might help them to adopt a physically more active lifestyle.

I go on hikes with a friend that has psychosis from time to time. We both really come alive when we are active. It makes for great conversation.
