Our successful 'R You OK?' project has provided some vital mental health support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout lockdown, Queens Park Rangers’ 'R You OK' campaign came to the aid of many supporters and has helped battle the mental health issues the nation faced throughout the challenging times.
All the way back in March, we asked you if you needed and help and many of you were in contact.
In what was an unprecedented time for us all, with understandable anxiety combined with potential fears over health, employment and other life matters, our mental health can be compromised and we know that communication is more important than ever.
As a result, QPR’s safeguarding officers have been ready and available to talk, particularly with those who are vulnerable / high risk, throughout the pandemic.
While they are not counsellors they have been happy to chat and/or signpost people to the appropriate support services and local groups where they can access the necessary help.
As well as this, throughout lockdown, first team manager Mark Warburton and Academy director Chris Ramsey were also on hand to give regular calls to some of our supporters, only further highlighting how important we as a club knew it was.
Ahead of National Mental Health Week 2020, we caught up with some of our participants who benefited from the 'R You OK' campaign and how it helped them mentally.
