England Athletics, supported by Mind the mental health charity, have today launched a Mental Health Ambassador programme.
The programme aims to establish a network of volunteer ambassadors in affiliated running clubs and groups across England to support those of us who are experiencing mental health problems. Support includes helping people to start running, get back into running, or continue running as well as to improve the mental wellbeing of their existing members.
Initially 128 ambassadors have been appointed from 91 different England Athletics affiliated clubs and registered groups across England. The ambassadors will be working with their clubs/groups on variety of things
We are delighted to announce that Alan Orr and Clare Mullin have been appointed Mental Health Ambassadors for our club, supporting us and the wider community with our mental health wellbeing through running.
