#YSFconnect – Physical activity and mental health

July 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm

This free event provides an opportunity to gain valuable mental health awareness, using examples from within and outside the sports sector. It will provide you with the knowledge to help your organisation work with young people who have mental health conditions.

Lunch is provided and gives the opportunity to network with our speakers and others working in sport.

Keynote – Mark Wisbey, Creative Minds

Creative Minds is all about the use of creative approaches and activities in healthcare; increasing self-esteem, providing a sense of purpose, developing social skills, helping community integration and improving quality of life. Mark will share his story of how Creative Minds helped to improve his own well-being and how he’s now using his skills in communities across Yorkshire.
