Introducing Shaun Klingbiel

 

 

 
Shaun has volunteered his extensive skills and will be the
Prospect Pirates Well-Being Coordinator,
providing valuable guidance and support for our
Junior and Senior playing group for the 2021/22 season and beyond.

 
A brief outlay of Shaun’s role as provided by him is as follows:

As a shorter statement the core role is about raising awareness of mental health and fostering greater well-being at the club and building support for players and other personnel.

 

At a club level, I will be following the recommendations outlined in the  “Supporting mental wellbeing in community sport: A toolkit for sporting organisations”

 

At a player level, I will be using “A guide for responding” as well as the procedures from the Youth Mental Health First Aid course which is quite similar.
