Hello windruahies!

Do we have a mental health ambassador for the club? There is an initiative run by uka (not sure if British triathlon has the same thing) in partnership with the mental health charity mind.

http://www.englandathletics.org/clubs--community/mental-wellbeing/m...

I currently work in mental health as a peer support worker and have life long lives experience of living with mental health and would like to get something up and running with the club of possible - organising meet ups, awareness events, support chats, etc. If you guys already have a mental health ambassador I'd love to help out too.

Unfortunately I cannot make the AGM as I am visiting my folks in Cyprus. I was going to propose it there however I can't make it!

Let me know your thoughts,

Panda x

Hi Helena

We have a General Welfare Officer as part of our BTF affiliation but we don't currently have anyone dedicated in looking after mental health issues.

I think its a great idea. I recommend talking to either Raya (welfare officer) or Rob (club sec)

I will message you their emails.

Totally agree. Sam did a talk on this a year or so ago, which was hugely helpful and very well-received. Go for it!

Thanks!

I'll drop them an email :) Probably see you Saturday morning for Lido swims!
