Understanding the Mental Health Landscape in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Conference

Thursday 23rd September 2021

On the 22nd September 2021, we were delighted to be able to host our first ever Mental Health conference, aimed at professionals within the sport and physical activity sector.

Following on from our Step Up Strategy launch earlier in the year, we’ve been building connections between physical activity and healthcare to create more opportunities for people living with mental illnesses to access physical activity, and this conference was an opportunity to share insights and learning from across the county, and develop new ideas and partnerships to further the agenda.

Joined by speakers from North Staffs Mind, Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent Council and WASSPS CIC, we shared information about what mental health looks like in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, how it can impact individuals, and the difference sports and activity can make on the quality of their lives.
