A free 3-hour training course designed to upskill coaches and those in contact with the target audience about mental health in a sporting environment which will be delivered across West Hertfordshire. The course will be looking at educating grassroot sports coaches around Mental Health, different diagnosis, statistics, solutions and how best to support through various resources and outlet.
We are aiming to deliver to 60 coaches across 3 sessions in the Pilot Year with a further 27 Sessions by December 2020 with 20 coaches attending per session. In August 2018 we began to develop the program and start to contact grassroot sport clubs and sporting partners regarding running the 3 sessions in late 2018.
Coach the Approach has ran 2 face to face session during 2020 and 3 online work shops with over 56 people attending across all 5 sessions.
