What is the CALM Pledge?
Across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we want to establish a network of sports clubs, organisations and activity providers who will encourage an open culture around mental health. The CALM pledge is our new initiative to help clubs demonstrate the importance of equality, inclusiveness and anti-stigma around mental health.
Care - to encourage an environment which displays kindness and concern for others.
Aware - to have club members and staff who are well informed around mental health conditions.
Listen - to give attention, and respond to participants who reach out for support.
Mindful - to be aware of mental health conditions and its impact on everyone.
The initiative is currently in its pilot stages, however clubs can register their interest here.
