Community sport offers an ideal space to support mental health and wellbeing, particularly for young people. It provides a safe space and trusted network where people feel socially connected. High numbers of young people participate in organised sport, meaning that we can provide an important context outside schools where positive messages, mental health education and guidance regarding support services can be provided.
SANDY encourages you to look after your mental health as well as your physical health. We encourage you to stay in touch with one another via telephone, via zoom, via social and urge you to prioritise your mental health. If you need support please visit any of the following websites/services or get in touch with your family doctor.
