Very good discussion here on depression and exercise. 
I believe that the link is made when you go we're the sun shines all day and that it is no coincident, that the Mediterranean diet and the hot climate, facilitates the self motivation for the self! 
In diet, exercise and general well being. 
The research is there on the care of the heart and a paper I looked at regarded, the lack of quality, organ donations and the UK. 
 
Organ donations, by the numbers, are better in climates 
 We're the sun shines 
And exercise is the culture.

Many thanks Anne, will read through publication in detail with interest, apologies for the error, certainly my reading of the press report was an implication that this was in a 'clinical' setting... in addition, I absolutely respect and appreciate the broader message from the researchers outlined in the BBC report regarding the importance of physical activity.  
 
My concern is not the research (and of course the efficacy of exercise as a 'treatment' needs empirical investigation), but really the impact that reports such as that published on the BBC website and once got hold of by certain sectors of the press have on attitudes to programmes such as those I am currently working on; Third sector projects which include an emphasis on physical activity, but not necessarily in an attempt to directly address depressive symptoms, but rather to address some of the exclusionary experiences associated with mental health disabilities. 
 
Am reading through full BMJ paper as we speak! 
 
Kind regards,  
 
Dom

Dear Dominic, 
 
Thank you for your email and consideration.  To point out, this was  
actually a program delivered outside of the medical setting, we received  
referrals from GPs.  The physical activity facilitation was delivered by  
individuals who were external to the medical system. 
 
Although there was no effect on reducing depressive symptoms, we did show a  
increase in physical activity which was maintained - an uncommon finding.  
The facilitators worked with patients to promote increase and uptake in ANY  
form of activity - whatever the patient believed they could successfully  
achieve.  Our facilitation was based on self-determination theory promoting  
development of confidence in engaging in activity, supporting and promoting  
the patients' preferences and own choices (autonomy) and development of  
relatedness (social networks, support etc). 
 
So unfortunately, this type of information may not have come out in the  
press - I agree it is perhaps worrying - but we were able to demonstrate  
sustaining physical activity.  Also, all trials have some limitations and  
this one was no different - so it is not the end of the story necessarily. 
 
Please feel free to email me or my colleagues further for discussion, thank  
you. 
 
Kind regards - Anne Haase (co-author - intervention development and  
facilitation)
