Tackling mental health in sport

Utilising technology to improve happiness and save lives in sports organisations. Connect, identify, support.

understanding mental health

Identifying small issues early can make
a big difference in people's lives.

Understanding mental health isn’t easy. Unlike physical health, it often goes unnoticed. Until it’s too late. This hidden pandemic affects 1 in 6 people every week. You’ll know some of them.

Your sports organisation is like a family; volunteers and staff at your club need an effective way of spotting the issues early on, so you can make a real difference to the outcomes.

In a world that finds it hard to talk but is better connected digitally than ever, people are comfortable online. So our simple solution gives them a safe space to open up, enabling you to offer the right support when they need it.

Govox is making a real difference in sports organisations nationally and internationally – improving happiness by at least 10% in 3 months. Could your sports organisation be more happy?

The club’s academy has been utilising Govox for the past few months to engage with its academy players, in order to help assess their wellbeing. The platform has been a vital tool in the management of our young players wellbeing, particularly during the current climate of COVID-19.

We have found Govox really valuable in being able to monitor people that we don’t see every day, understand and sense check their mental wellness and highlight any issues. It’s a really helpful platform for picking out people that may benefit from a chat and is a very useful tool in terms of managing and supporting wellbeing.

Govox Wellbeing is a digital wellbeing solution that enables consistent, ongoing, light-touch monitoring of club members’ emotional health and happiness against a defined set of indicators, linked to Mental Health, via a regular Wellbeing Check In process. When people respond they will receive the latest hints & tips to help support their Wellbeing, you will also receive access to the responses so you know who in your club most needs support.

Clubs are a community, like a family to many. You care about your people and a regular Wellbeing Check In is one way you can keep conversations with your membership active and supportive; at clubs you are more than what goes on simply during sport. When someone is struggling it isn’t always obvious, research shows that it can be quite the opposite. Govox Wellbeing gives you the opportunity to connect regularly and help Prioritise The Conversations That Matter, making a real difference when it is needed most.

Govox Wellbeing is a valuable tool for clubs, but it shouldn’t feel onerous. It is just part of the solution and as such we run the process monthly, people don’t want to be bothered all the time and we find that once a month works brilliantly.

You will be able to nominate who at the club has secure access to the responses, this could be the coaching team or the pastoral/ Safeguarding team at the club. We can work with you to identify who is best placed.
