Share Your Story

Do you use sport to improve your mental health? Have you turned to exercise to cope with mental illness? Have you taken on a significant sporting challenge to restart your life?

We are passionate about the influence sport and exercise can play in changing people’s lives and improving mental health. Our shared stories are the focal point of Sporting Heads and provide a crucial opportunity to explore and celebrate how people are using sport and exercise for better mental health. A platform to promote these personal journeys and communities and provide a deeper understanding of the benefits and risks of exercising for better mental health.

Our shared stories can be written from your own words or written with us through an online or personal interview. They can be a full life story or just a short description of a major life event or experience. Whatever works best to describe your experiences and of course they can remain completely anonymous if you prefer.

If your article inspires just one person to explore the impact of sport then it is worth sharing.

If you would like your story to be considered for publication, please let us know a little more about it by completing the form below.
