This pilot study evaluates an individualized health promotion program for people with mental illness receiving services at a mental health center in Keene, NH. The study will test the following hypotheses: Hypothesis 1: Compared to baseline (pre-study) levels, participants in the In SHAPE program will demonstrate increased physical activity as indicated by self-report and observed measures. Hypothesis 2: Compared to baseline (pre-study) levels, participants in the In SHAPE program will demonstrate improved fitness and health status as indicated by greater capacity on the 6-minute walk test, one mile walk test, weight and body composition, and flexibility indexes. The following secondary (exploratory) hypotheses will be considered: Compared to baseline (pre-study) levels, participants in the In SHAPE program will demonstrate improved subjective health status, quality of life, mood, and self-efficacy. In addition, participants will demonstrate improved cardiovascular fitness as indicated by lower pulse rate and blood pressure.

The In SHAPE program aims to improve the physical fitness and health of persons with mental illness. Participants in the program are assigned a health mentor who assesses individual lifestyle habits and health status, identifies goals for lifestyle change, and serves as a motivator and physical trainer.
