Back in June 2017 the Guernsey Mind Team Talk campaign was launched here in Guernsey and since then we have added Motorsport to the list of sports that are actively supporting the campaign. This week Guernsey Mind were pleased to announce that Guernsey Cricket is joining their campaign. We were invited to film and produce their latest addition to the Team Talk campaign and that included working with Ash and Hannah, both keen cricketers, who demonstrated their drive and motivation to help others after sharing their compelling story with us on camera.

The short promotional video featuring cricket adds to the already growing list of sports that have already been profiled on film. This included Football, Rugby, Motorsport, Triathlon and Athletics. ‘Positive mental health’ is the real buzz word in society at the moment as we frequently hear it in the workplace, socially, within the media and now frequently in the sporting arena. Whilst we can’t directly help those who could be struggling with less positive mental health we hope that our contribution to the discussion, highlights that it really is ok to be open about your thoughts and feelings. Hannah and Ash certainly were and we hope it encourages you to do the same! #StartTheConversation
