Here in the UK, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health illness each year. Mental health includes a person’s emotional, psychological and social well-being.

An obvious widespread problem, yet it is estimated that only a quarter of sufferers receive ongoing treatment, leaving the majority of the UK population tackling these debilitating issues on their own.

Here at Back Onside we have recognised this ongoing dilemma and are determined to rebuild a society where no young person or adult is left tackling mental health problems alone.


The Structure

Back Onside is committed to helping young people and adults who face mental health challenges due to social exclusion, disability or challenging life circumstances. We have one aim: to promote self-confidence, raise self-esteem and unlock the potential confined within each participant.

By delivering programmes and workshops; focused around sport, music, drama and art, Back Onside supports and relieves mental health obstacles through peer-support and participation in activities that encourage good health and well-being.

Sport and exercise is proven to improve your mood, increase self-esteem, reduce life stress and ease mental health difficulties. Here at Back Onside, we put this situation into practice. We provide #SupportThroughSport.


Making a Difference, Nationwide

 Along with our programmes and workshops, Back Onside work with the wider community to raise awareness of social issues, mental health and disabilities to help reduce the stigma and discrimination which often surrounds these areas.
