Mental Health Awareness and Education

Swim England is 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.
We want to help all our athletes, coaches, staff and volunteers to have 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. We will be producing a video for use at open meets, regional and county championships and for our web site to highlight mental wellbeing.  We are continuing to work with the National Youth Advisory Panel to create resources which can be used by young people.
