Sport students learnt more about protecting their mental wellbeing in a workshop at the College of West Anglia in King's Lynn.
Around 85 students attended the workshop on Wednesday, September 20 at the CWA Sports Campus based at Alive Lynnsport.
Organised in partnership with the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT), students discussed emotional wellbeing and found out more about the causes of mental ill health.
There were several speakers at the event including Gabriel Abotsie, Men's Wellbeing Nursing Lead with NSFT, and Gary Freeman from Wellbeing Norfolk and Waveney.
Mr Abotsie said: 'The day also gave students the opportunity to challenges stereotypes of masculinity, while showing them that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. We hope that the students found the event useful and that it will encourage anyone who needs extra support to ask for it.'
