Mental health charity Mind has developed a toolkit boxers coaches and others in the sport may find useful called ‘Coronavirus and your wellbeing’.

In times of uncertainty –  with and some of us having additional time on our hands – learning something new and achieving goals has been linked with higher levels of wellbeing.

The toolkit has plenty of ideas to help, including tips for staying at home or indoors and how to take care of your mental health, along with a useful checklist which you can access via:

The toolkit has been launched alongside Mind’s #HaveYourMatesBack campaign, which encourages you to notice if your friends are acting differently, by giving them a call or a text and asking if they are OK.
