We use the power of sport and physical activity to raise awareness, tackle mental health stigmas, and support those of us with mental health problems to become more active.
Our online and in-person training courses are aimed at everyone who works in sport and physical activity, from community/grassroots to elite level. The offering for both individuals and sport organisations helps you to support the mental health of your members, participants, colleagues, coaches, and volunteers.
Complete the course and you will gain the confidence to be able to support people experiencing mental health problems, and help them to thrive inside and outside of your sessions.
Mind offers a range of training courses for anyone interested in workplace wellbeing. Whether you are an individual, a small employer or large organisation, we have a mental health training course to suit you.
Our Regional Networks, events calendar and webinar series offer the opportunity to share good practice, resources, training and relevant updates, from local, regional and national level.
We've created eight Regional Networks in England to that bring together sport, physical activity and mental health organisations from a local to regional level. The Networks work to increase the number of groups within their region who are equipped with the skills to support and engage people experiencing mental health problems in physical activity.
On 13 October 2021, we are hosting our Mental Health in Sport and Physical Activity Conference. Our Conference will showcase new research, learnings and good practice as well as looking at how we can empower more people to be physically active to support their mental health.
Event information, delegate packs and the session recordings will be hosted on our Conference webpage.
As part of our sector support offer, we've introduced a brand new series of webinars to support the sport and physical activity sector to do more around mental health. Our webinars cover an array of topics to share learnings and good practice, and they are all free to attend.
Each month, we send a monthly e-newsletter to update our partners from across the sport, physical activity and mental health sectors about a variety of topics. Our newsletters provide updates on our work, share good practice from across the sector and opportunities for you to get involved with.
