Sports Studies People With Mental Health Problems: Social Work
Already working in the world of sport? Or want to make the move into this field? Look no further. We’ve teamed up with Everton in the Community (the official charity of Everton Football Club) to offer a unique opportunity for anyone with an interest in sport, physical activity and mental health.
You’ll work with academics, practitioners and other professionals to understand the relationship between movement and our minds. We’ll also help you examine how mental health can be improved – and compromised – by taking part in sport, physical activity and exercise.
Knowing what makes an effective programme for promoting good mental health is key, so you’ll spend time examining others and designing your own. You’ll also have the opportunity to carry out research which focuses on policy and creating impact.
Your career in the world of sport
Running this degree with Everton in the Community means we can offer you unique opportunities. This might be the chance to deliver one of their programmes, complete work experience or join a research project.
As well as recent graduates, this programme is perfect for practitioners, professionals and policy makers. Our students come from a range of backgrounds including youth and social work, creative industries and public health. For anyone already working in community or professional sport, this is an ideal development opportunity.
