Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and what better time to show our support for better mental health.

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental wellbeing describes your mental state - how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life.

Our mental wellbeing is dynamic and can change from moment to moment, day-to-day, month-to-month or year-to-year. Getting out and about, meeting friends, taking time for yourself to do something you enjoy, taking part in snowsport can all have a positive impact on our mental health. Stress, worry, loneliness and lack of sleep can all impact negatively on our mental health. 

Watch this two-minute video from MIND to understand mental health problems: 

If things aren't going well for you, or if you notice someone feels down, it is important to talk about it. Talking helps. Our athletes can talk to their coaches, other staff, our Performance Lifestyle Advisor or our Welfare Officer. Other sources of help are listed here:
