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.
