Sky Blues in the Community launched their new mental health programme, ‘Men Talk’, five weeks ago.
The sessions have taken place virtually and have been successful in supporting many men across Coventry, North Warwickshire and South Warwickshire. The topics discussed so far have been:
- Managing Anxiety
- Dealing with Depression
- Understanding Stress
- Increasing Self-Compassion
- Healthy Lifestyle education
The men who have attended the sessions have given fantastic feedback to SBitC, for instance:
“You have helped in so many ways I’m not sure you realise how awesome this project is from a person to have lived with this illness for so long.”
“I can honestly say that each session has made me feel better, at first I didn't know what to expect so I was a bit apprehensive about what to say and how I would feel. As I have attended more sessions I am feeling a lot more comfortable and have been able to open up.”
As we begin to see COVID-19 restrictions being lifted across England, SBitC are pleased to confirm they will soon be delivering physical Men Talk sessions.
In line with ‘Stage 2’ of the Government road map, from 22nd April 2021, SBitC will deliver outdoor activities for those enrolled on the Men Talk programme.
In line with ‘Stage 3’ of the Government road map, SBitC will deliver indoor activities and mental health workshops from the week commencing 17th May 2021.
Following all legal limits being removed on 21st June 2021, SBitC look forward to welcoming those enrolled on Men Talk to local events and to engage with the Coventry City FC in the 2021/2022 season.
