BODY Carnegie host second Box In Mind course

October 29, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny


Bolton on Dearne Youth (BODY) Carnegie hosted their second Box In Mind course at their club on Friday 25th October.

Head coach Ricky Stables feels the course is a must for all coaches and volunteers, making participants more aware of mental health and how to spot the signs of those having difficulties and how to support people in the community.
