Men's mental health takes centre stage as University of Nottingham Sport unite for Movember

Men's mental health takes centre stage as University of Nottingham Sport unite for Movember

Description
Sport is full of colour. It is littered with special moments that over the course of a season we have the privilege to showcase it in all its glory through video, motion, and photography. Yet sadly, so many are robbed of the colour and warmth of sport, and indeed their lives due to poor mental health. Men with mental health conditions often describe their life as feeling drained of colour. As part of our Movember campaign, we turned off the colour on our Instagram posts in support of those whose lives can seem colourless at times, to raise awareness, to start the conversation and to raise vital funds to support some of the amazing initiatives that are saving Men's lives.
