Training for Sport

Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all those working in sport!


With the recent publication of the Thriving at Work Review and the Mental Health and Elite Sport Action Plan, increasing demands are being placed on the sports sector to play a role in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all who work within it. With mental health problems affecting approximately 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children and young people, this community wide issue requires a community wide approach.

Team Mental Health's approach to training is multi-dimensional. Our experience tells us that the issue of mental health requires this. Given the complexities and risk that can be associated with poor mental health, it’s difficult to expect one person within a team, club or organisation to assume responsibility for this. As such, we advocate whole organisation mental health training and our training programme reflects this.

We want to empower and offer pragmatic guidance to assist all those working in sport to continue to make a positive difference through playing a role in promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, preventing mental ill health, detecting signs of problems sooner rather than later, intervening early and supporting recovery.

For information on multiple bookings or whole club / organisation packages please contact us at training@teammentalhealth.co.uk
