It is estimated that one in four people will experience a mental health illness each year in the UK. For these people, the pressures and strains of life and work can act as a catalyst to mental health problems, with the most common being depression and anxiety.
The links between good physical health and mental health are well recognised. Physical activity such as playing rugby can be very beneficial for mental health and wellbeing as well as bringing physical benefits.
At Swaffham RUFC we care as much about our members mental health
as we do about their physical health. We are a club that aims to look after each other both on and off the pitch.
The following pages tell you more about
what to look for, how to help and where to get support.
