NEWS | RUCST to host open chat at the NYS to raise awareness for World Mental Health day

Rotherham United Community Sports Trust are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an open chat with first team players around mental health on Thursday the 30th September from 2:30-4pm.

Through this event, RUCST aims to encourage Millers fans to support each other with any challenges they face or wish to talk about in order to raise awareness for World Mental Health day.

This informal event will take place in the Youth hub in the Goalzone, New York Stadium, and will enable fans to come and have a cup of tea or coffee, play pool and have a chat with a couple of first team players.

The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health. Mental Health awareness has also become more apparent since the pandemic, as it has been a difficult time for many people. At RUCST, we aim to provide support to anyone who needs it.

Head of Community Jamie Noble said:

 “I think that sometimes the importance of a person’s mental health can be underestimated, even by ourselves. We should regularly take a few minutes, half an hour or longer to think about how we can take care of our minds because it is incredibly significant.

Sometimes just having a coffee with a friend or stranger and sharing your thoughts can be a big help. They say a problem shared is a problem halved and in a lot of cases that is true.”

At RUCST, we are passionate about offering support to those who need it. Our Health department of highly qualified and experienced coaches are on a mission to support Rotherham residents to lead a healthy, happy, and long life- mentally and physically.
