Normalising positive mental health & wellbeing through sport.
The story behind the pod:
Speakeasy Club started during the pandemic, with friends sharing their weeks over a glass of wine. We talked through the fun stuff and the tricky stuff. Helping each other work out what we didn’t understand.
Following my diagnosis with depression & severe anxiety, i had to start being curious to understand why i was feeling the way i was, and ultimately then how i could start making changes. Curiosity is a superpower.
Sport has been my life. From playing, working, volunteering, and enjoying various sports across the last 30 years, I know the integral role it can play in peoples live; from wellbeing to a sense of belonging and everything in between.
Objectives of the pod:
- Champion & normalise positive mental health & wellbeing through sport & the outdoors.
- Having fun & raise awareness of mental health & wellbeing in sport
- Challenge the tricky conversation, in a supportive and non-judgemental way.
- Make curiosity and supporting each other (and ourselves!) cool.
