Dose response relationships between physical activity, walking and health-related quality of life in clinically depressed mid-aged and older women
We have recently demonstrated that for women in their 50s-80s who do not exhibit signs of depression, greater amounts of leisure-time physical activity are associated with better current and future health-related quality of life, particularly physical functioning and vitality. Even if walking is their only activity, women, particularly those in their 70s-80s, have better health-related quality of life. This study will examine whether these findings hold true for mid-aged women with depression and older women with poor mental health.
