Mental Health Awareness Week: Connect

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024, St.Helens R.F.C. and Saints Community Development Foundation (SCDF) are highlighting ‘Five Ways To Wellbeing’.

The Club’s Leadership, Culture, and Performance Coach James Roby is our Saint with today’s tip –  CONNECT – encouraging you to make a move or connect with to someone you know.

Connecting with others can bring us closer to those people, and being social can mean different things to us all as individuals. James has a couple of suggestions that might give you an idea of how you can make a move to reach out and make a connection today.

If you are struggling, there is local support that can be helpful:

Our Saints Community Development Foundation (SCDF) runs a programme called Building Foundations which is set out to support men and women looking to perhaps get back into a healthy lifestyle, or even start an active journey. It is also a chance to help create social connections with others too!

First Team player Joe Batchleor and former Saint Phil Vievers lead on the sessions, so why not come along?

  • WHEN: Wednesday evenings starting at 6:30pm and running until 8pm
  • WHERE: Totally Wicked Stadium
  • HOW: It’s completely free, simply register online here

The St Helens Borough Council website has a whole host of services and resources regarding Mental Health Support which you can read more about by clicking here.

Remember, everyone’s own personal mental health matters, so why not try to make a move to connect with someone you know or care for today?
