Mental health webinar – supporting coaches, athletes

Friday 21st August 2020

Thursday 27 August 2020, 6-7pm on Zoom

scottishathletics are pleased to schedule another in our series of coach development webinars.

This time, there is a chance to join online with Robert Nesbitt, Head of Physical Activity and Sport at the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH), to talk about mental health and wellbeing.

The webinar will take place on Thursday evening from 6pm to 7pm and club secretaries have been emailed with details on how to secure your invitation.

In this webinar Robert will talk about creating a safe, secure and supportive environment for our athletes and coaches as they reconnect with your club and return to activity.

We plan to explore and discuss the experiences of people during lockdown, how they may be feeling about returning to group activity, how we can support them to reconnect with their group and signs to look out for.

This webinar is aimed primarily at coaches working at any stage on the pathway and anyone with a responsibility for coaching or athlete support in the club, particularly Welfare Officers.

Robert will be joined on the webinar by our Director of Performance and Coaching, Stephen Maguire, and other members of the scottishathletics team.

Following Robert’s initial presentation there will be an opportunity for questions and the webinar will finish no later than 7pm.
