What is the Moray Mental Health Accreditation Scheme?

This is an initiative that was developed in partnership by the Moray Wellbeing Hub and Moray Council's Community Sports Development Hub from 2023. The rationale for the scheme is that because sports coaches have a trusted relationship with the people they support, they are therefore often in the best position to offer mental health wellbeing support. The accreditation scheme reflects that the affiliated clubs have completed training in mental health first aid, sign posting for support and trauma based approaches. The accreditation mark not only provides evidence of a clubs commitment to supporting good mental wellbeing of its members but the willingness of the club to receive referrals from mental health support agencies.
