EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Mental health: My personal journey

Andy Brownhill, head of rugby at Park House School, Newbury, a pathway coach with Gloucester academy and a coach with Scotland U16s, opens up about his struggles with mental health.

In this moving story, he shares with us what happened, how he found help and how we can help ourselves and help each other.

Frankly, I love doing podcasts to find out more about rugby and sport.

This podcast was on a different level for me. First, that Andy is so brave. Second, because I was in completely uncharted territory for me, yet it made so much sense. And third, due to the impact it has made on my life and my way forward.

I implore you not to pay lip-service to mental health education, support and development.

Even if you don’t listen to the podcast, please take time to visit some of the links I’ve put below.

Thanks to Rich Berry and Sam Jarman for their support.

If you feel you need to reach out to anyone, or find out more, then all four of us are more than happy to listen.
