British Wrestling has a Mental Health support system, this is for BWA athletes (at any membership level), coaches, volunteers and families associated with our sport.
The important thing about this new support system, is that all conversations will be confidential. If you need to reach out, you do not need to worry about any of your fellow wrestlers, colleagues, coaches or volunteers finding out; all communications will be treated with complete confidentiality.
The support system is will be run by trained mental health volunteers and will have access to and support from mental health charities. These volunteers are not councilors but are being put in place to offer you support and help guide you through your mental health journey.
We all need to remember that;
If you need to talk then please email firstname.lastname@example.org please don’t be afraid to reach out.
