State of Mind Sport - Parent Presentation
We are delighted to announce that the school is hosting a State of Mind Sport Presentation for parents on Monday 3rd February 5:30 - 6:30pm
The State of Mind programme was established in 2011, following the unexpected death by suicide of Terry Newton – a well-respected Super league player. The charity was established with the aim of improving the mental health, wellbeing and working life of rugby league players, staff and local people across all the rugby league communities. We want to get people talking about it.
Our team of mental health and sport professionals deliver comprehensive education sessions throughout the UK in super league, championship and amateur clubs as well as schools; colleges; community groups and commercial organisations aimed at raising awareness of mental health issues and the importance of mental fitness and wellbeing We use the power of sport to translate how people in everyday life can improve their overall mental fitness and physical health.
The key objectives of the presentation are to:
- Describe the symptoms of anxiety and depressed moods
- Discuss issues of suicide prevention
- List the signs of potential alcohol and recreational drug misuse
- Share information to improve mental fitness and wellbeing
- Consider setting of goals and measures for overcoming adversity
- Emphasise the importance of being part of a team supporting each other and how this translates from playing sport to the workplace
