SAMH and sportscotland launched a new strategic partnership in 2019 which will see us create a learning and development programme for staff, including training over 400 Active Schools Coordinators across Scotland , and developing in-depth mental health and wellbeing programmes.
We want to see young people grow up with a new understanding and resilience around mental wellbeing through sport and physical activity, for generations to come.
SAMH is a partner of jogscotland and offers their running groups mental health awareness sessions and training for leaders; signposting a support for members; and access to resources.
We have trained over 1,800 jog leaders, and SAMH’s mental health awareness training is mandatory for all new jog leaders
