Olympian Jack Green has announced his support for Kent Mental Health & Wellbeing Awards.
The annual event aims to showcase the people, organisations and initiatives that help us cope with life.
Wellbeing and mental health isn’t just an exclusive thing or an elite thing when it comes to awards, it’s about how do we help anyone and everyone… That’s what this event is for – celebrating all of wellbeing, all of mental health and how we overcome those challenges and help one another.Jack Green
Since retiring from athletics at the age of twenty-eight, double Olympian Jack Green has made his mark in the corporate wellbeing world. Committed and passionate about supporting others and tackling stigma, Jack progressed to various wellbeing roles including Global Wellbeing Lead at BBC and Head of Performance at Champion Health.
We feel very privileged to have Jack Green’s support for South Kent Mind and its Kent Mental Health & Wellbeing Awards. Jack’s lived experience of mental health problems, combined with his wellbeing work experience and his passion for helping people, will be an asset to promoting the event.Simon Dolby, CEO, South Kent Mind
