Sportscotland and Jogscotland partnerships

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  600 jog leaders, and SAMH’s mental health awareness training is mandatory for all new jog leaders

Community Strides

SAMH and jogscotland’s ‘Community Strides’ group is set up to support people from the BAME community to be more included in their community, and better equipped to support their own physical health, mental health, and wellbeing, through the power of physical activity.
