Better living through mountain climbing

The Guardian reports a group of 15 people in England who suffer from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression climbed a 4,406-foot mountain to improve their mental health.

More than three-quarters of the participants report a sense of achievement from the challenge and say they feel more confident. All 15 have reduced their night-time sedatives, five are on less psychiatric medication, and three have had fewer auditory hallucinations.
