Released Thursday, 21st May 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Today, we're joined by Nick Marshall, active referee and organiser of Marshalling Men's Minds - a community and support network for those with poor mental health,
We talked about his refereeing and mental health journeys (one upwards, one less so..) and how he overcame it.
We talked about how to spot if you're struggling, what triggers you (or your nearest and dearest may see) as well as how that manifests when you head onto the field.
We covered some ground around dealing with pressure on the pitch, and some tips on refocussing when you need to.
Nick talked briefly about the Dodger 7s team who are an invitational side made of those who have suffered from poor mental health, or have been around it. Check their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dodgerrugby/
The key thing around the whole mental health issue is to talk. To anyone. But please do. You can contact Nick via the website or on Facebook or, for those outside the UK, you can head to mentalhealth.org to find local resources to where you live.
