Rovers to support Mental Health Awareness Week

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are proud to share that they'll be getting behind Mental Health Foundation's upcoming Mental Health Awareness Week.

Mental Health Awareness Week takes places from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th May 2020 with Community Trust staff working hard behind the scenes to put together a selection of resources for local schools.

Everyone has mental health, and much like physical health, it needs looking after.

Community Trust's Wellbeing Officer, Simon Wootton has developed resources with the theme of kindness, that are aimed at children in upper key stage two to support an increased awareness of mental health and Simon is behind the efforts at supporting #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

"The Mental Health Foundation's Mental Health Awareness Week is another opportunity to put those conversations in the spotlight and further normalise discussions around mental health, just as we have done for our physical health."

"As someone who has struggled with my own mental health, I understand how vital it is to support the promotion of positive mental health for all across our local community."

Each day across Mental Health Awareness Week, via Community Trust social media channels, the #WeWillGetRoverThis daily challenges will be adapted to a wellbeing challenge to support the mental health awareness week.

The resource pack sent out to local schools is to help open up discussions for young people and their families about looking after their emotional wellbeing.

Alongside the daily challenges posted out over social media the Community Trust will be offering additional digital support for adults with topics supporting mental health awareness.

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are committed to helping the local community, particularly in these uncertain times due to COVID-19.

Next week, online there'll be additional resources for adults in exploring topics such as managing negative emotions, practising self-kindness, challenging the stigma around mental health, realising mindfulness and positive changes and transformative kindness.

Whether you call it mental health, mental wellbeing or emotional health, mindset is being talked about more than ever. The local and wider community are learning to deal with the new challenges of lockdown so being aware of mental health is even more vital.

You can follow everything that Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are doing to support #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek from Monday over on the @BRFCTrust social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
