Posted by Daniel Middleton on 18/04/2024
Coach development from the BMC

Are you a coach or instructor who would like to learn how to help climbers who may need some support with their mental health in order to access the fantastic wellbeing benefits of climbing? The Climb4WellBeing workshop could be just what you need.

Climb4WellBeing is a one-day, in person, course designed to build awareness of mental health, build confidence in supporting people with poor mental health, and learning how to deliver climbing as a tool for wellbeing.

We hope Climb4WellBeing will be a powerful tool for climbing wall managers, staff, coaches, and grassroot or community organisation volunteers accessing climbing spaces developing their understanding and advocacy of mental health and neurodivergence.

On completion of Climb4WellBeing you will be able to integrate new skills into the services you already offer, access BMC digital resources, and gain valuable Mountain Training CPD (continuous personal/professional development) points.

 

Benefits of completing Climb4WellBeing include:

  • Develop an understanding of mental health illness and neurodivergence.

  • Learn how to make climbing spaces more inclusive for people experience poor mental health, or people with a range of neurodiversities.

  • Develop techniques for having impactful conversations about mental health.

  • Discover how climbing can be used to improve mental health.

  • Recognise the importance of mindset in climbing.

  • Gain wellbeing tools and techniques to deliver Climb4WellBeing sessions for people who are experiencing poor mental health or deliver session with a more holistic approach.

 

Upcoming Course Dates:

We hope to add course dates in the near future. If you would like a course run near you please contact dan@thebmc.co.uk
