Hull KR proud to support Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Hull Kingston Rovers are proud to support Mental Health Awareness Week, in partnership with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind.

Throughout this week, we will be sharing stories from players, staff, supporters and sponsors surrounding their experiences with the issue, when we launch the ‘#DearMe‘ campaign. say mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. We believe that mental health is everyone’s business.

So for one week each May, we campaign around a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week.

Since our first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, we’ve raised awareness of topics like stress, relationships, loneliness, sleep, alcohol and friendship.

Hundreds of schools, businesses and communities have come together to start conversations around mental health that can change and even save lives.

This year, with your support, we want to reach more people than ever.

13-19 May 2019: Body image – how we feel and think about our bodies

Last year we found that 30% of all adults have felt so stressed by body image and appearance that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. That’s almost 1 in every 3 people.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age and directly impact our mental health.

However there is still a lack of much-needed research and understanding around this.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week:

The good news is that we can tackle body image through what children are taught in schools, by the way we talk about our bodies on a daily basis and through policy change by governments across the UK.
