The Run Talk Run Mission
Run Talk Run exists to make both running and mental health support less intimidating, and more accessible.
So many of us suffer some kind of 'imposter syndrome' when it comes to our mental health, which can make it tricky to seek support.
You might have a feeling that you need somewhere to talk that is a safe place.
We think that peer support and community can help, and running does a rather lovely job at facilitating those conversations for us. There are so many reasons why running makes it easier to open up.
