Great Minds – Support for men in West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire & Harrogate Integrated Care System (ICS) has partnered with State of Mind Sport to provide local communities with a mental health/fitness awareness programme for men. Sessions include evidence based theory and interactive peer support that will encourage men to share common themes that can have a negative impact on our emotional responses, mental health and physical wellbeing.

The sessions are on Zoom and cover basic mental fitness, stress management, building resilience, exploring emotional intelligence and anger management.

Former sports people will use their own lived experience in sport to illustrate and harness the best evidence base intervention to help men to manage and improve their mental fitness.

Sessions start the week of the 18th January 2021, last for approximately one hour and run on a Monday and Wednesday for 7 weeks. You can attend either session, or you can attend both each week.

If anyone is interested and wants to join, or perhaps knows someone who might want to get involved, please email swy-tr.greatminds@nhs.net. You can also find out more by watching this short video.
