#RunAndTalk programme, supported by Mind – the mental health charity, has been created with the aim of improving mental health through running in England.
About This Programme
Affiliated clubs and RunTogether groups can apply to be part of the #RunAndTalk programme (appointing their Mental Health Champions as part of the process). There are four application periods each year (January, spring, summer and autumn).
The #RunAndTalk programme aims to:
- get people talking about mental health, sharing their experiences and removing stigma.
- provide support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems.
- support people experiencing mental health problems to be physically active through running, whether that is to support them in starting, returning to or continuing to run.
