Book your place on Box In Mind Bitesize

June 12, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


Box In Mind Bitesize – England Boxing’s new series of free, 45-minute sessions talking about mental health during the Coronavirus lockdown – is now available to book.

It sees the popular three-hour course that is normally attended in person converted to a shorter online format so it can be easily accessed during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The course content, put together with assistance from Mental Health Charity Mind, aims to increase awareness around mental health problems in the boxing community.

It also gives guidance on how to spot the signs that someone is encountering problems with their mental health, and explains what they can then do to get that person the right help.

A first pilot session ran last week via the Zoom app with some of the England Boxing regional officials and the feedback from those who took part was very positive.

Bitesize will be run regularly by the Box In Mind tutors and will be fully interactive.

Course feedback

“A very powerful course.”

“The course gives a good understanding of the stigma which surrounds Mental Health and how to address this.”

“I benefited from the course and will definitely be doing the full three-hour session when I am able to.”

“The interactive sections of the course were really useful and thought-provoking.”

“The course made me stop and think.”

“I found the session really enlightening, and I don’t think I’d have changed anything. There was good input from everyone and it’s certainly enforced my thinking that I want to attend the full three-hour course when available.”

How to book

Each session will have 10 places and can be booked here.
