Posted on 17th May 2023 at 09:22
This week marks World Mental Health Awareness Week 2023 and the Tigers Trust continue to support and engage with individuals who may be facing difficulties through delivery of the Tigers Together sessions.
World Mental Health Awareness Week is all about bringing more attention to mental health problems so that people can better understand mental health issues in both themselves and others.
This year’s theme is based around anxiety, this can be a normal emotion to all, but sometimes it can get out of control and can become a mental health problem.
Lots of things can lead to feelings of anxiety, including exam pressures, relationships, starting a new job (or losing one) and other big life events. People can also get anxious when it comes to things to do with money and not being able to meet basic needs, like heating a home or buying food.
Tigers Together sessions allow individuals to come together to compete in football matches delivered in a relaxed manner, providing both physical and social benefits to participants.
Since the start of 2023, the Tigers Trust has engaged with 91 individuals and a total of 660 aggregate attendances have been recorded since the turn of the year.
Tigers Trust staff member Paul Wray said: “These sessions provide a home away from a home for many people.
“If you’re noticing a drop at all in your mental wellbeing and want to get involved with football in a relaxed environment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
