Access the Mental Health for Sport and Physical Activity online course for free

At the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, which is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation and runs from the 18-24 May 2020, UK Coaching has announced – in collaboration with its awarding organisation 1st4sport, and partners Mind, the mental health charity, and Sport England – that the nation’s coaches can access the Mental Health for Sport and Physical Activity online course for free.

Everyone who usually delivers coaching in a club, leisure centre or any other community sports and physical activity setting – such as coaches, activators, sports administrators, front of house staff, volunteers and fitness instructors and personal trainers – will benefit from the Mental Health for Sport and Physical Activity course.  

Specifically, learners will be able to:
  • welcome and support people living with mental health problems in their sport and physical activity sessions
  • increase their knowledge of mental health problems
  • apply the learning in their coaching practice
  • make their club or organisation more inclusive.

The online course is recognised to provide learners with 3 CPD (continuing professional development) points as awarded by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

Usually £18, the course is accessible via uk coaching’s learning and development platform and will remain free of charge until 31 August 2020.
