This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, so we thought this would be an opportune time to reach out and remind you of the support MAC can offer around mental health.
As the club’s Welfare Officers, it is our role to look out for the welfare of our athletes, and mental health is a huge part of that. It is the responsibility of everyone at the club to look out for each other, to be able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues, and to know where to go for support.
Section 3.5 in our Welfare & Childcare Policy: (https://motherwellac.com/wp-content/uploads/Motherwell-AC-Welfare-Childcare-Policy-2020-1.pdf ) has some helpful links on services you can contact for support, training and tools. We would like to encourage everyone to give this a read if you can ,and if you or someone you know at the club is struggling, please reach out.
If you have any concerns or questions at all, we are always only a phone call or email away.
