Our new relationship with Swansea University is another significant step forward towards ensuring as many representative sportspeople in the UK have access to professional mental health and well-being support.

About Sporting Wellness

Sporting Wellness was launched in 2020 as the UK’s first centralised, mental health support system for any representative UK sportspeople aged over 16. The formation of the charity came as a result of the lack of access to professional mental healthcare for those who were not necessarily professional sportspeople in mainstream sports.

To date, Sporting Wellness has provided free, professional, and confidential mental healthcare to over 1,800 sportspeople in 114 sports.

Every sportsperson deserves professional well-being support. If you need some help, we are here
