Mental health is being talked about more and more, we are moving in the right direction, and yet so many people still struggle to find the words to let their family and friends know that they are not okay.
Derby County Community Trust are supporting World Suicide Prevention day and various volunteers from organisations across the county are spreading awareness and information around mental health provision in Derby and Derbyshire.
As a Trust, we want everyone to know that we have a range of programmes that are designed to help those who need them, whether you, your family or friends could benefit from having a chat over a coffee or a kickabout:
Team Talk – we currently run three weekly hubs in Derby to get men talking about their state of mind in relaxed. Learn more.
Active Minds – introduces different types of exercise to woman who suffer with mild anxiety/depression to get them more confident about fitness. Learn more.
Get Set To Go – weekly football sessions at Pride Park’s Powerleague Soccerdome, allowing you to benefit from the physical and social aspect of football.
Tackle It – a NHS only referred programme for 12 to 18 year olds who struggle with mental health. Gain confidence, socialise and learn about opportunities in the community.
Mental Health First Aid – mental health training for staff to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health and the knowledge to support participants.
These are just some of the mental health based programmes we offer – there are plenty of other fitness programmes you can get involved in!
