British Tennis supporting World Mental Health Day

• 1 MINUTE READ

British Tennis is once again proud to support World Mental Health Day and encourage players and fans to look after their own wellbeing.

As the mental health charity Mind reports, one in four people every year experiences a mental health problem, yet hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.

Tennis is a great way to improve and maintain good mental health. Playing it helps relieve stress, releases endorphins, and is a good opportunity to spend time with friends.

Oli Jones and Naomi Cavaday are British Tennis mental health ambassadors. Last year, we asked them to tell us their stories about dealing with mental health issues.

Now in 2017, we asked them to share how their involvement in tennis makes them feel and how it has had a positive impact on their mental health.

The theme for World Mental Health Day 2017 is wellbeing in the workplace, with Mind offering a range of ways to get involved, whether you're an individual looking to boost your own wellbeing, or an employer seeking to support staff.
