#RunAndTalk programme is still open for applications

Run and Talk Laura

The #RunAndTalk programme, supported by Mind – the mental health charity, has been created with the aim of improving mental health through running.

Affiliated clubs and RunTogether groups can apply to be part of the #RunAndTalk programme (appointing their Mental Health Champions as part of the process). There are four application periods each year (January, spring, summer and autumn).

The #RunAndTalk programme aims to:

  • get people talking about mental health, sharing their experiences and removing stigma.
  • provide support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems.
  • support 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.

If your club or group is already registered on the #RunAndTalk programme and would like to add or amend your appointed Mental Health Champions just drop us an email at inclusion@englandathletics.org with the information.

The applications window is now open up to 31st January. Click here to apply online.
