Sport and mental health event

Post by Pope John Brawl » Wed Oct 31, 2018 3:37 pm

Hi!

Just wanted to flag up this event hosted at the University of Edinburgh on the 13th November:

As part of The University of Edinburgh's Mental Health & Wellbeing Week (12-16 November), we are delighted to bring to you another instalment of our #LetsTalk series.

Join Sports' Champions Scott Hastings, former International Rugby Union player, and Jenny Davis, Commonwealth Cycling medalist, to hear them talk about their experiences of sports and positive mental health. Kevin McGhee will also share his experiences of how recovery from severe depression led to improved golfing success. Hosted by The Foundation for Positive Mental Health in partnership with The University of Edinburgh Sports Union, the evening aims to shed light on the similarities of mental resilience techniques and how this can help us in sports and everyday life.

This event is completely FREE, so please ensure you spread the word and share details with your family, friends, colleagues, classmates, and fellow club members!
