Today marks the two year anniversary since we broke a Guinness World Record at the Halliwell Jones with the North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and our colleague at Offload
The goal was to break the World Record for the largest Mental Health Lesson at the home of Warrington Wolves leading up to the State of Mind round of fixtures in 2018
A group of former rugby league players told their story as part of the lesson using their lived experience to emphasise the importance of mental fitness and included Danny Sculthorpe, Phil Veivers, Jimmy Gittins, Ian Smith, Paul Highton, Ian Knott and Chris Hall.
The former players were joined by Emma Goldsmith from Rugby League Cares and the session was devised and led by Dr. Phil Cooper MBE co-founder of State of Mind Sport and Nurse Consultant with the North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust alongside Simon Barber Trust Chief Executive and patron of State of Mind, Joanne Moore and Mike Moy and with massive support from MC James Howes from Warrington Wolves Foundation and the Warrington Wolves Commercial department and stadium management.
There were 849 people who became World Record breakers on a warm and sunny memorable record breaking evening
State of Mind are massively grateful for everyone who attended and everyone who helped make it possible from the North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
