Mental Health Charter for Sport & Recreation
Highbury Korfball Club are proud to have signed The Sport and Recreational Alliance (SRA) mental health charter, which aims to use sport to reduce stigma and encourage positive conversation about mental health. Sport and exercise have been shown to have positive impacts on mental health, but there’s always more we can do to help!
The Charter sets out how sport and recreation organisations can make activities inclusive, positive and open to everyone. We’ve put together an action plan – which we review every year – to build upon the supportive and open environment that already exists within Highbury.
If you ever need someone to chat to about your mental health, our Welfare Office is the first port of call. Alternatively, any member of the committee or your coaches are happy to have a chat about anything that may be on your mind.
We’re always open to suggestions on how we can make changes to the club to improve the mental health of our members. So if you have any ideas, please get in touch!
The Mental Health Foundation have also put together this compilation of resources and links to organisations that can help as well if you’re struggling.
