Exeter Chiefs Academy Mental Health Support

Exeter Chiefs Academy aim to keep the rugby community healthy by promoting healthy discussion around mental wellbeing and signposting those who need it, to expert advice. 

It is estimated that one in four people will experience a mental health illness each year in the UK. For those people, the pressures and strains of life and work can act as a catalyst to mental health problems, with the most common being depression and anxiety. 

The links between good physical health and mental health are well recognised. Physical activity such as playing rugby can be very beneficial for mental health and wellbeing as well as bringing physical benefits.

Exeter Chiefs Academy are here to support if you or someone you know is struggling with their mental health. We encourage you to seek support from our trained and caring staff and we will help and/or signpost you to the appropriate expertise. 

Please do not suffer alone, be afraid or embarrassed to act. Any enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence. 

You as a person and your wellbeing are the upmost important thing to us.
