Sports clubs

   

Our emotional and mental health (EAMH) workshops are hour-long presentations aimed at young athletes from under 14’s to under 21 year groups.

Designed by young people with a keen sporting interest, the EAMH addresses the effects of emotional and mental health issues in a fun and interactive way, frequently using sporting terminology. 

The workshop addresses our perception of ‘failure’ and is devised to get young people to open up and talk about how they feel, while signposting them to where they can turn in a time of need. Our key messages are: ‘Its ok not to feel ok’ and ‘there is always a way.’  We have been working with professional football clubs across the UK since 2010, but the sessions can be customised for other sporting organisations.

 

This session is intended for young people who have previously participated in the first EAMH workshop.

The session builds on some of the issues addressed in the previous presentation and looks at how we could help a friend that may be struggling with a mental health problem. We attempt to address serious issues in a fun and interactive way.

EAMH Explained is a 1-2 hour, informal version of the EAMH workshop aimed at adults that are involved within the sporting environment.

The session explains the EAMH while examining some of the issues faced by young sports people and how to identify warning signs that they may be struggling.  We look at the effects of emotional and mental health problems and deliver our key messages that: ‘Its ok not to feel ok’ and ‘there is always a way.’ The workshop can be tailored to apply to club staff, parents or host families.
