A national campaign bringing together sports organisations with business and policy-makers in a pledge to provide 21,000 community sport coaches and volunteers with mental health awareness training by 2021.
The #21by21 campaign is being co-ordinated by the Sport for Development Coalition and key partners. A growing body of evidence connects participation in sport with positive wellbeing and the prevention and treatment of mild to moderate mental health conditions. Coaches and volunteers are routinely trained in physical first aid and safeguarding. Many organisations recognise that mental health first aid training is equally important.
