We are aware of some club members who have struggled in recent years so this is something we are very keen, as a club, to support. This year Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 13th to 19th May with the theme being Body Image - How we think and feel about our bodies.
Most people will know of someone who has struggled with their mental health at some time or other - a family member, friend, work colleague or neighbour. The type of issues people can experience are wide ranging sometimes caused by a single incident in their life but often it’s a combination of so many different things, just life itself can become tough at times.
Thankfully mental health wellbeing is a subject that people feel more able to talk about, however, being able to start that conversation if you are struggling personally, is perhaps the hardest step to take but its ok not to be ok. There are a number of organisations that can help, from a chat to more formal support, more information about this year’s campaign as well as other very useful resources can be found via the dedicated Mental Health Awareness Week link.
If you are struggling and haven’t been feeling yourself recently, please click on the link above and Mental Health Support networks are available at the bottom of the page.
Do you need urgent help? If your mental or emotional state quickly gets worse, or you're worried about someone you know - help is available.
You're not alone; talk to someone you trust. Sharing a problem is often the first step to recovery.
