Mental Health in Sport and Physical Activity Conference

Sharing the last six years of learnings and good practice within the sport and physical activity sector, and exploring what's next.

Date: Wednesday 13 October 2021

About this event

The sport and physical activity sector has made real progress towards creating a supportive and inclusive environment for those of us living with mental health problems. The Mental Health in Sport and Physical Activity Conference will showcase new research, learnings and good practice to celebrate this progress. It'll also look at how we can empower more people to be physically active to support their mental health.

The conference will be the first time Loughborough University will share the findings from their evaluation of our physical activity programme. The findings will highlight the advances the sector has made around mental health culture and tackling stigma.

Make a Pledge

Throughout the Conference, we will be encouraging both in-person and virtual delegates to make a pledge to turn intention into action. It may be small or big; it may be something you can work on directly, or require your senior management team to support. We will be sending out resources to support you to transform the pledge into practical actions as well as checking-in after 3 months to see if we can provide any further support to help you fulfil your commitment. If you would like to make a pledge, please email [email protected]
