MIND MATTERS – THE PERSONAL WELL BEING SERIES
In every area of day-to-day life, we are exploring the effects and consequences that many stresses and strains can have on our minds.
Our feelings can fluctuate on a sliding scale – from feeling happy on one side, to a little gloomy and down at times, and in some cases, go beyond that and into depression.
Launched on the back of the success of the Professional Cricketers' Helpline, the PCA in association with LPP, has developed the Addictive Behaviour Programme into a series of tutorials entitled ‘Mind Matters’.
Recognise the circumstances that could lead to you getting into problem relationship with substances, gambling or alcohol.
Learn more about the warning signs of anxiety and depression and the subsequent links to self-harm and suicide.
Recognise signs of problems in yourself, your teammates, friends and family.
Learn more about the process for accessing help, self-managing your own problem and be able to focus on the challenges of playing cricket at the highest level and/or leading a healthy and happy life during or after a career playing cricket.
