Der Herbstlauf (The Autumn Run) hosted by #Aachen’s athletics club #ATG is planned to take place on 15 December this year. The sports event will garner exposure for mental health just as much as physical health, says new event organiser and psychiatry specialist Antje Trauzeddel, featured left in the image. At the run, attendees will not only have the opportunity to join the race, but also participate in discussions and gain specialist insights. “Sport is a preventative means against mental illness. More than 18 million people in Germany are affected by depressive illnesses,” notes Trauzeddel. She looks forward to the event which will take place in the Aachen forest; the combination of daylight, fresh air and physical exercise make for excellent therapy, she concludes.
