11. Mental Wellbeing

There is a strong link between sport and mental well-being. This is why Hamilton Rugby Club and Scottish Rugby are passionate in raising awareness of mental well-being, and breaking any negative stigmas which might exist around mental health.

We all have mental health – some days it is in a better place than others. Life has its ups and downs, it can be trying. Everyone deals with things differently – and that is ok!

Scottish Rugby has partnered with Breathing Space, a free, confidential phone service for anyone in Scotland, experiencing low mood, anxiety or depression. It’s operated by NHS 24 and can be contacted on 0800 838 587. You can find more information at
