NEWS: Coventry City and SBitC supporting World Mental Health Day

10 October 2023

Coventry City and Sky Blus in the Community are raising awareness of World Mental Health Day, which is today.

World Mental Health Day is a day to talk about mental health and show everyone that mental health matters.

It’s also a day to let people know that it’s okay to ask for help, no matter what you’re going through. 

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.

On Saturday the Sky Blues teamed up with Norwich City to increase fans awareness of the importance of reaching out to others, with a special team news announcement by both Clubs - raising awareness of suicide and the importance of checking in with those around you.

Throughout the year, Sky Blues in the Community run their MenTalk and WomenTalk programmes, which are aimed at encouraging adults to talk about their mental health and providing support for them too.

Sky Blues in the Community developed MENtalk and WOMENtalk, co-produced with beneficiaries, with the aim of supporting men and women across Coventry and Warwickshire with their emotional health and well-being. Both projects bring men and women together from all backgrounds and with a range of mental health problems using group physical and social activities combined with positive mental health promotion in a fun, welcoming, non-clinical environment.

These sessions take place within local community centres or gyms around Coventry and Warwickshire for people over 18 to attend in a safe place to take part in multi sports activities such as, football, badminton, basketball and many more. These activities are aimed to get people engaged in sports and socialise with different people improving their mental health and wellbeing alongside their physical health. 

If you would like more information on any of these sessions, please get in touch: sbitc@sbitc.org.uk | 02476 786 349.
