#MileShyClub Sale expands to provide 1-2-1 support for those with mental health difficulties

Club founder Jane was appointed a Mental Health Champion with England Athletics last year, and the #MileShyClub is pleased to announce that Trish from the Club has now also been appointed a Mental Health Champion.  We are starting a new mental health #runandtalk initiative here at the club which began at the weekend, and which Trish is going to be looking after! 

We appreciate that for some of our runners, the thought of just getting to one of our sessions can seem a step too much.  For most first timers, trying running for the first time can be daunting, but for some it might just feel impossible.  Therefore, Trish is going to be on hand to give 1-2-1 support at our running sessions.  Trish will answer any questions you might have ahead of the session, and she will be able to help you through your first steps with us as a club.  Sound good?  Trish has given us permission to share her email with you, and if you want to arrange an appointment with her for when you do come to see us, please do drop her a line.  Trish is at: trishcanny@hotmail.com   

We are keen to develop this further and are on the look out for anyone who wants to volunteer as a Mental Health Champion.  Full training is provided, with the potential for further training (subject to our funding).  If you would like to explore the possibility of being involved, please email the club at hello@mileshyclub.com
