Mental Health Awareness and Education – the Swim England Approach

Swim England are aware that athletes on the pathway are coming forward indicating they have mental health issues. Results from the British Swimming central screening show that the prevalence of mental health issues in elite swimmers are in keeping with that of the general population. This means that up to 20% of swimmers may have issues with mental health.

Swim England want to help all of our athletes, coaches, staff and volunteers to ave positive mental wellbeing.

But just like with physical wellbeing, when mental wellbeing isn’t as positive as you’d like, help may be needed.

‘We’ve….Got UR Back’ is a Swim England Campaign to support positive mental health. Swim England will be producing a video for use at open meets, regional and county championships, as well as the Swim England and Regional websites to highlight mental wellbeing.
