Mental Health

At England Athletics, mental health is a year-round subject. The mental health charity Mind has reported that more than half of adults, and over two-thirds of young people, say that their mental health has got worse during the pandemic. That’s why we’re hosting a series of online Let’s Talk About Mental Health events throughout 2021 and 2022 – to get the sport talking!

The latest ‘Let’s Talk About Mental Health online session’ took place on Wednesday 23 June. This was a panel discussion hosted by four-time Team GB Olympian and UK Athletics Equality, Diversity & Engagement Lead, Donna Fraser. Those joining Donna on the panel will include Hayley Jarvis (Head of Sport and Physical Activity at Mind the mental health charity), Joe Fuggle (former GB hurdler and founder of The Athlete Place), and English 1500m Champion Danielle Hodgkinson, a mental health nurse in the Army. The next event will be a speaker event in September with former GB athlete Jack Green.
