This Swindon campaign has been designed by local men who wanted to change the culture of our town and reduce stigma around men’s mental health. We all have mental health and some days we feel stressed or frustrated, sometimes things get on top of us. This campaign has been designed to encourage people to ask each other how they really feel.
Cricklade Rugby Club really are a family. We were saddened last year to hear of the passing of their Captain due to suicide. In this video, Mike talks about isolation, and how rugby has helped him personally. Rugby’s an accessible sport that is great for both physical and mental wellbeing. Search for your local rugby club today to see how you can get involved.
With thanks to WASP (Wiltshire & Swindon Sport) & Sport England for funding this campaign.
