Mental health awareness for sport and physical activity

Who should attend

Our three-hour workshop, Mental health awareness for sport and physical activity, was developed with support from sports coach UK, and is designed for coaches, sport administrators, volunteers and front of house staff.

What’s covered?

  • Understand common misconceptions about mental health and the impact of stigma and discrimination.
  • Identify the positive impact that being active has on physical and mental health.
  • Appreciate the barriers that stop people getting active.
  • Talk confidently about mental health.
  • Know where to signpost people to if they need support.
  • Identify practical actions to make your service more accessible for everyone.


  • No prior knowledge of mental health is necessary.
  • Three-hour workshop
  • Can be delivered in-house at the location of your choice.
