Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and their partners have organised a new online charter regarding mental health in sport and physical activity.
Scotland’s Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity and Sport aims to empower physical activity and sport communities to improve equality and reduce discrimination, ensuring mental health and wellbeing is not a barrier to engaging, participating and achieving in physical activity and sport.
Physical activity through sport or recreation has been proven to have a positive impact on physical and mental health and wellbeing. Sporting communities have a recognised role to play in using the collective power of physical activity and sport to create positive lasting change in mental health and wellbeing, which the Charter aims to highlight.
To sign up to the Charter, or for further information, please visit the SAMH website.
