State of Mind to visit Oldham-Crusaders clash on Sunday

State of Mind will raise awareness of mental fitness at the League One clash between Oldham and North Wales Crusaders at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday.

The dedicated State of Mind Super League round was replaced by a wider-ranging Wellbeing Round, and with no top flight games on Sunday, an alternative plan was made.

Playing key roles in State of Mind’s presentations across all Super League clubs recently are three Oldhamers – former players Danny Sculthorpe and Ian Knott, as well as former Super League referee Ian Smith.

Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton said: “Mental health is high on the pubic agenda at present so I’m asking fans who will be at our game against North Wales Crusaders on Sunday to go to their stall and see what they do — it could be vital to someone you know.”

State of Mind deliver mental health sessions across the country and have spoken to more than 60,000 people in clubs, schools, colleges, universities and businesses  plus others to police, fire and ambulance services.”

In the summer of 2018 State Of Mind  Sport and the North-West Boroughs’ Healthcare NHS Trust broke the world record for the biggest audience at a meeting of its kind, held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington.
