The session was an opportunity to come together and learn more about the grief cycle and explore ways to provide support for each other when we may be facing difficult times.

The session was delivered by Michael Boaden - Chief Operating Officer for CEM with support from Gabby Stephenson - CEM Adult Services Manager.

James Tose, Community Sports Trust manager, said: “The Mental Health training that was provided by Carlisle Eden MIND was an excellent opportunity for all staff based at Brunton Park to come together to gain some invaluable knowledge about Mental Health and, in particular, ‘Grief’.

"The information provided as well as some already great knowledge and experience in the room made the session really informative and benefited everybody that took part."

Gabby Stephenson, CEM Adult Services Manager, said: "It was a real honour for CEMind to be invited by CUFC CST to the club to talk about bereavement in regard to looking after ourselves and our own mental health following a bereavement.

"It allowed for some very important discussions and the opportunity for us to do follow up work with the club and trust who have kindly provided a space for our Lighthouse crisis workers to be available for anyone at the club to talk to about mental health over two afternoons.

"We would like to thank the Community Trust and the club for embracing what can be a difficult topic, thus helping to remove the stigma around mental health."

Michael Boaden said: "As always it was a great privilege for us to visit Brunton Park recently and work with friends and colleagues at Carlisle United. 

Although recent sad events have had a profound impact on all at the club it was great to help people think about ways to support each other and ensure people know how to reach out for other help as needed. 

"We are so proud of our links to the football club and look forward to continuing that work.”
