MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH MONTH AND INTERNATIONAL MEN’S DAY
A message from Laura MacKay
As you may be aware, a number of our senior Squad are doing this years Movember, an annual event to raise awareness of men’s mental health issues.
Thanks to all who have supported and donated so far and to others who would like to the link to donate is tiny.one/Movember
International Men’s Day falls on the 19th November, and is dedicated to focussing on a wider range of men’s health issues.
Unfortunately men tend to be more reluctant to seek help or treatment for their mental health struggles and talking about your problems is not really accepted (it’s not a guy thing)
Life can be hard at times with lots of problems we all have to deal with, sometimes if you find it hard to talk to family or friends there are so many organization out there offering help and support, it’s just knowing thats its ok not to be ok and just making the first step or to have a conversation about it, is all it takes to get the help or advice you need.
All the information of the different groups you can talk to are on our website (see below) and also our new group we have joined SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) Link also below.
Can I also add please as a club to be reminded that to think sometimes before we speak as what some regard as “Banter” is not taken as such and this is at training, game day, and on social media for all groups.
Please be respectful to all at Annan Rugby Club regardless of what role you play and we are all supposed to work together for the good for all.
