We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect anyone. The only effective, sustainable approach to wellbeing involves the whole community.
Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don’t tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member or colleague experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for help with their own mental health.
Mental Health Aware
Ideal for managers and coaches who wish to be trained and aware of mental health and wellbeing when working with their players.
Some of the skills that will be developed on this course include; an understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma, a basic knowledge of some common mental health issues, an introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing and confidence to offer support to someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
