During Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, we have been speaking to a number of sports professionals and athletes. Here we spoke with PSN Advisory Board member, Stuart Worden, Principal of The BRIT School.
My mental health is important to me because… I want to feel connected to the world, my community and the life I lead…
To help with my mental health… I have taken up cycling, written a ballet, been in nature, listened to David Bowie every day and meditated every day.
Something I am most looking forward to when getting back to normal is… live theatre
As an organisation we have done… work on meditation, yoga, being in nature, worked with CALM, celebrated the complexities of mental health, expanded our conselling service, run training sessions for parents
I have witnessed… first-hand the effect lockdowns can have on students. It’s been hard for them. The arts has helped motivate and hold them. It always will.
I have supported the student’s mental health and wellbeing by… celebrating them, encouraging them to be creative, encourage them to talk, encourage us all to listen.
Lockdown has impacted education by… highlighting the gaps between the haves and the have nots.
Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place from 10 to 16 May and we have spoken to a number of professionals across the sports industry about their mental wellbeing.
