[me]united is a sports therapy service aimed at participants who suffer from, or at risk of developing, mental health illnesses such as stress, depression, anxiety and low mood. Participants will not need a referral from a doctor or another service as they may be suffering with symptoms of a mental illness without being diagnosed e.g. low confidence, low self-esteem and low mood. Participants may have not spoken about their mental health to anyone or understand where they can go for support, [me]united aims to provide information about local services which may be able to support participants throughout their recovery.

What we'll deliver:

  • 1 session per week in Walton, Liverpool
  • 1 session per week in Knowsley
  • 1 session per week in Sefton

Why it's a great idea:

There are many barriers to playing sport especially if you have a mental health illness. Barriers such as finances, limited time, physical limitations and a lack of motivation are common for a lot of people, if you have a mental health illness you may also have psychological and sociological barriers to overcome. [me]united aims to provide positive coaching and a friendly environment for participants to play sport with likeminded people with the main focus being FUN! All abilities will be welcome, with no negative scrutiny, shouting or aggression shown towards any participants. Just sport, fun, laughing and a good physical workout.

Steps to get it done:

  • Secure funding for Knowsley pitch hire for 1 year
  • Secure Knowlsey pitch hire
  • Secure funding for Sefton pitch hire for 1 year
  • Secure Sefton pitch hire

The name [me]united gives the participants an understanding what the service is all about, It’s about them, ‘me’. Through sports therapy ‘together’ we can work together to aid recovery, ‘United’.
