Health & Wellbeing

The Snowsport England #SNOWMoreStigma campaign is our mental health and wellbeing initiative, and we want you to get involved!  

Positive mental health and wellbeing is just as important as physical health. Help us to stamp out shame and stigma in snowsport – your voice and your attitude to mental health matters so help us to create a powerful, positive culture of mental wellbeing.

#SNOWMoreStigma is SNOWBALLING action

We are all in this together | We all have mental health | We all can be the change

Look out for us on the Snowsport England roadshow visiting schools, clubs, conferences and events in order to LISTEN to what you need and understand the very real challenges and success stories of positive mental wellbeing initiatives. We are going to empower and educate at all levels, so it is easier for anyone struggling to talk and seek help & guidance.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE. IT’S GOOD TO TALK. ITS OK TO SAY.

We have recruited our athlete stars for #SNOWMoreStigma who are right behind this campaign. Watch this space!
