Pitchero head to Twickenham to discuss mental health


Posted by Steph Howe - 03 November, 2017


Mental health is something as a society we've previously struggled to talk about. Now, the silence has been broken and we're talking about it more than ever.

In sport, mental health is something vitally important just like any other experience in life.

Whether it be a pressures after coming back from an injury, the scary prospect of retirement, or something as common as not making the team, mental health is something that needs to be considered, discussed and managed across grassroots sport.

Last month, we attended the first ever 'Not a Red Card Offence' campaign, hosted by finance company, Legal and General. The world of sport and business came together to discuss mental health in the workplace.

The main objective of the campaign was to break down barriers and use the platform for sports athletes and personalities to discuss their experiences in sport, in the hope it will break down barriers and reinforce the fact that talking about mental health is NOT a red card offence.

 Olympic Gold Medalist and Pitchero Athlete Ambassador, Kate Richardson-Walsh has also been involved in the Not a Red Card Offence campaign over the past few months, along with her wife, Helen.

She understands the importance of mental health in sport and urges people to speak out.
