Spot Support Signpost is a new initiative from Mind for physical activity providers.
It aims to help anyone, from volunteers to senior leaders, to:
- Spot the signs someone may be struggling
- Support them, if you feel able to
- Signpost them to help and services
If you deliver physical activity sessions, you’re not expected to be a mental health expert. But you have a duty of care to support the people in your sessions. And often, small, everyday actions can make a big difference.
