State of Mind Sport deliver free mental fitness sessions to sports clubs and offer the opportunity for club volunteers to access free mental health first aid training

We have recently smashed the 100 club milestone and we will continue our goal to deliver mental fitness sessions in rugby clubs across the country

Terry Newton

We aim to provide all amateur clubs with a Mental Health Awareness Session in addition to identifying a Mental Fitness Champion in each club and providing Mental Health First Aid Training for at least one representative from each club. All this will be provided free of charge to each club. All we ask is that each club brings together your people at your clubhouse and we will do the rest. If you do not have the facilities then we will work with you to ensure the session can be delivered close to you.

We believe that all clubs have a responsibility to support the health and wellbeing of their players and members as part of their health and safety duties. Taking a positive and proactive approach to mental fitness can help to grow players/members wellbeing and resilience and support them in fulfilling their potential. It can help build a culture that champions mental fitness, provides a greater understanding in how to help those who need more support. It will also enhance the reputation of the club.

A club that focuses on mental fitness and encourages healthy behaviours is more likely to attract the best talent, to have players and members feeling valued, to be supported by parents and to be successful in the long term.

Massive thanks to Ste Cash who is the lead for the project
