Free fitness sessions are being put on this week to those in the city with mental health issues.
The council's Bristol Active Life Project (BALP) is running different session each day in things like cricket, yoga and martial arts hoping to highlight how being active can help.
Mark Owen Physical Activity Development Officer for BALP: "As part of any well-structured treatment programme, physical activity and exercise would be an important element in that, in line with any other support that individual might be receiving.
"It's also about the social inclusion and engagement element of it as well. Participating in physical activity gives you an opportunity to meet people, make friends and have fun in a supported and friendly environment."
People can take part in the sessions if they've been referred by their GP, support worker or health professional.
Activity sessions on offer include:
Indoor cricket at St Pauls Academy (Monday, May 21)
City Centre walks (Tuesday, May 22)
Indoor football at Horfield Leisure Centre (Wednesday, May 23)
Martial Arts at St Pauls Academy (Thursday, May 24)
Women's Yoga at Easton Leisure Centre (Friday, May 25)
