Coffee Connect Chat Series & Officials/Volunteer well-being calendar

02/02/2021 00:00, In Blog /

It is understandable that during this period of National Lockdown, where we are revisiting the tightest of restrictions, people may be experiencing various feelings and emotions, such as anxiety, lack of motivation or generally feeling a bit flat. Therefore, it is really important that throughout this time everyone prioritises their own mental well-being. To reconnect the Officials/Volunteers community during this period we are launching the Coffee Connect Chat series. This series will start with 'Time to Talk Day' we welcome you to join us for a virtual coffee/tea and to interact with networks in the Welsh Athletics Officials' & Volunteer community. 

Let’s start talking about mental health.

The last 12 months have been challenging, but we know that the more conversations we have about mental health, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, and the closer we will come to ending mental health stigma and discrimination.

This year Time to Talk Day is focusing on the power of small, because however you have a conversation about mental health – whether it’s a quick text/call or a virtual catch-up session with fellow volunteers – it has the power to make a big difference.

Time to Talk Day is run by Time to Change to help spread the word that you can talk about mental health anywhere, anytime. Time to Change is England’s biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination and is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
