Following on from the trusts support of World Mental Health Day, Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are proud to announce we will be launching the wellbeing Hub in partnership with Rotherham Care Group in the coming months.
The correlation between mental ill-health and chronic physical health issues, is now well-documented. By using sport and physical activity to augment improvements in emotional coping and stress management, good holistic outcomes could be achieved early with improvements in physical, social and emotional well-being preventing future reliance on services.
A partnership between Rotherham Care Group and Rotherham United Community Sports Trust intends to address the needs of those members of the Rotherham community who struggle to sustain good mental and physical health as a result of challenging social circumstances, poor coping ability, lack of support network, and poor quality of life.
The outcome of this partnership has led to the development of The Wellbeing Hub. As part of this, interventions will be delivered via therapeutic and educational classes, which will be supported by a broader programme of sport based activity. Opportunities for peer support, voluntary work and preparation for employment are also key objectives of the hub.
The Wellbeing Hub will be launched later this month so watch this space for more information and our new prospectus.
To emphasise the importance of early intervention our inclusion Officer Trudi Race has trained to deliver Youth Mental Health First Aid. The Trust will be aiming to deliver the course to teachers and support workers within Rotherham schools to give them the tools to be able to recognise and respond to poor mental health in young people.
