Men of Wakefield…Join us!

Lindsey - Recovery College Principal

September 14, 2020

In collaboration with State in Mind Sport and the West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) Health and Care Partnership, Great Minds is a project that will be delivering online sessions looking at basic mental fitness, stress management, building resilience, exploring emotional intelligence and anger management as part of the WY&H Health and Care Partnership’s suicide prevention work.

To help them do this, they will be working alongside various clubs across WY&H (such as Castleford Tigers RLFC, Featherstone Rovers RLFC/TV and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats RLFC). Former sports people will be using 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.

The workshops for Wakefield will be at 6pm and dates/topics as follows:

Monday 21st September – Stress Management

Monday 28th September – Basic Mental Fitness

Monday 5th October – Anger Management

Monday 12th October – Life Balance

Monday 19th October – Emotional Intelligence

Monday 26th October – Resilience

Monday 2nd November – Debrief/Celebrations
