THE racing industry on Tuesday outlined its commitment to supporting the mental health of participants as the British Horseracing Authority and Racing Welfare became signatories to the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation.The charter was launched in March 2015 by the Sport and Recreation Alliance, alongside the Professional Players Federation and with support from the mental health charity Mind, and sets out how sport can use its collective power to tackle mental ill-health and the stigma that surrounds it.
"Our vision for British racing is quite simply to be seen as a force for good.
Our community engagement strategy, Racing Together, takes the best of what our industry offers and uses it to focus on the issues that matter most to our communities.
A core objective of our programme is to be recognised as a sport that cares for its people and looks after its own.
"We aim to educate those involved in racing, with all the unique challenges it entails, to be aware that support is available and that it is always better to come forward and speak to someone.
We want to break down the stigma that is attached to mental health and tackle it head on.
The signing of the charter, and the leadership role which the BHA will take, will be the catalyst for this." Mental Health Awareness Week The BHA and Racing Welfare join some of the country's biggest sports organisations as signatories, including The FA, Lawn Tennis Association, Rugby Football Union, English Cricket Board and UK Athletics, as well as the Professional Jockeys Association.The signing of the charter by the BHA and Racing Welfare - the registered charity supporting the workforce of British horseracing - coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week which commenced on Monday. _t=35ca&amp;amp;_n=adcc13&amp;amp;_i=92&amp;amp;_c=INSERT_CLICK_MACRO&amp;amp;_r=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER" mce_href=" _t=35ca&amp;amp;amp;_n=adcc13&amp;amp;amp;_i=92&amp;amp;amp;_c=INSERT_CLICK_MACRO&amp;amp;amp;_r=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER" target='_blank'&amp;gt; &amp;lt;img src=" _t=45c7&amp;amp;_n=adcc13&amp;amp;_i=92&amp;amp;_c=INSERT_CLICK_MACRO&amp;amp;_r=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER" mce_src=" Today's dealerships collect, generate and use a lot of information to operate.Peartree Dealership centralizes, structures and delivers all of the necessary information to make the best decisions at the right time.We’re so confident that our system can meet your needs that we are willing to give you access to a demo system to see for yourself.Complete the details below and we’ll be in touch to set an overview of the system.
