Foundation release series of mini-podcasts on Time to Talk Day

04 February 2021

Time to Talk Day, which takes place on 4 February each year, helps start conversations about mental health and highlights the importance of people talking about their feelings. 

As part of the campaign, the Foundation have recorded three separate podcasts which focus on the way that the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have affected people’s mental health. 

The first podcast features three special guests, in the form of Belles captain Kirsty Smith, Belles manager and Rovers player Andy Butler, as well as Dons rugby player and Club Doncaster Sports College graduate Ben Howe. 

They discuss the way that lockdown has affected them on both a professional and personal level. 

Our second podcast features two Fit Rovers graduates, Jan and Michael, who discuss their experiences throughout lockdown and the things that they’ve been doing to help connect with their family members. 

The final podcast is a three-part special, in which we talk to the Foundation’s younger participants about the way they’ve been feeling throughout lockdown, as well as the adjustments that they’ve had to make as they adapt to their home learning. 

All podcasts can be listened to in full on our Home Goals Youtube channel.
