So, what is #RunAndTalk?
#RunAndTalk is an England Athletics initiative supported by Mind, the mental health charity, which aims to improve mental health through running in England by:
- getting people talking about mental health, sharing their experiences and removing stigma.
- providing support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems.
- supporting 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.
#RunAndTalk is about getting more people running and benefiting from the physical, social and mental wellbeing benefits that come from running.
Mental Health Charter
England Athletics was one of the first signatories of the Mental Health Charter and we have also signed the Time to Change Pledge.
