Every Sunday / 11:00 / Ruislip Cricket Club (HA4 7JZ)
Our #RunAndTalk programme has been created with the aim of improving mental health and wellbeing through running. This is a totally relaxed drop-in session where you can walk, jog or run as much or as little as you want. Refreshments are available at the clubhouse afterwards.
- 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.

Additional Support for England Athletes
Athletes representing England, but who do not benefit from support through the World Class Programme (WCP), can also access mental health services and support following UKA’s appointment of Priory Healthcare. Non-programme athletes can access a clear self-referral signposting system to quickly access a nationwide network of mental health expertise via the Priory’s Wellbeing Centres and Hospitals. Whilst athletes are still advised to seek referral via their GP in the first instance, there is a recognition that pressures on GPs and the NHS mean that athletes may need to seek access to a private referral system both promptly and confidentially. Visit the UKA website for details on how to access Priory Healthcare mental health support. Athletes in the World Class Programme can access their support through services delivered by Cognacity and BUPA – click here for details.
