To ensure that we’re doing all we can to help our junior rowers through these challenging times, British Rowing is proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week.

We are signposting some really useful resources for our junior rowers – and would like to remind all of our youngsters that they’re not alone in this difficult period.


If you’re a junior who is struggling with your mental health and wellbeing – or have friends who you are worried about – then we encourage you to look through the following resources:

BBC – Lockdown Life: Top tips for staying happy and active

BBC – How to support your wellbeing during Coronavirus

Place2Be – Children’s Mental Health Week – I express myself through…

If you’re a junior rower, who is worried about going back to school or being at university, we encourage you to look through the following resources:

Young Minds: Coping with anxiety about going back to school

Young Minds: Looking after yourself at uni

If you’re a parent of a junior rower who is looking to support your child’s mental health, we encourage you to look through the following resources:

NSPCC: Supporting your child’s wellbeing online

Young Minds: Supporting a child returning to school after lockdown

Place2BE: Supporting your child’s mental health

Without our members, we wouldn't be able to provide the guidance, support and emergency funding that we have been able to during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider continuing to support our sport by renewing or purchasing your British Rowing membership today.
