In order to provide our Head’s up participants with support during this time of social distancing we have set up a Facebook group where members can still interact with each other and allow them to stay in contact with us. In addition to this we have started to host regular ‘Head’s Up Live’ sessions with a roundtable discussion between panelists discussing how they are trying to look after their mental wellbeing at the moment as well as answering questions from viewers. In conjunction with this we have produced a number of resources that may be of use.
If you would like any more information or would like to be involved in Head’s Up or Head’s Up Live, please email [email protected] or ring 01743 289177 ext 216.
Mental Health problems affect 1 in 4 people at some point during their lives, yet the stigma around using mental health services stops many people from seeking the help they need. Shrewsbury Town in the Community mean to tackle this through offering mental health sports sessions for those living with mental health problems
Head’s Up looks to engage adults who are already working with Mental Health Services and will include a variety of sports and physical activities.
These sessions aim to:
- Raise awareness of mental health issues.
- Reduce the stigma surrounding mental health conditions.
- Provide a weekly physical activity session in order to help achieve a positive mental well-being.
- Demonstrate the importance sport can have in tackling mental health problems.
