Time to Change & Mind

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. Yet it is still something the majority of us loath to talk about or address. This is something that has to change.

We want to use the power of the sport and recreation sector to make our activities welcoming, positive and inclusive for everyone. That's why the Sport and Recreation Alliance alongside the Professional Players Federation and with support from the mental health charity Mind, have created the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation.

The Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation sets out how sport can use its collective power to tackle mental ill health and the stigma that surrounds it.

Alongside a number of player associations and NGB’s who have already signed up, we are asking for other sporting organisations to commit to take positive steps to address and encourage people to be open about mental health issues.
