In partnership with Worcestershire Ambassadors. Supporting Worcester Community Trust. Because mental health matters.

We are delighted to be an official partner of the

Worcester City Run 10k and half-marathon taking place 5th September 2021

Over the past 12 months, the Coronavirus pandemic and floods

in Worcester have had an impact on everybody’s mental health.

Worcestershire Ambassadors are committed to supporting our

community improve their mental health and well being.

All of the funds raised through the partnership between the Worcestershire Ambassadors and Worcester City Runs 2021 will be used by Worcester Community Trust to offer professional support and activities to build good mental health and well-being.

This will be organised by MoodMasters and Mental Health First Aid.

Mental health first aid courses will teach you to spot earlier signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression and stress. Our courses are delivered in accordance with the Mental Health First Aid England guidelines by our specialist facilitators who have experience of training specifically in the workplace.
