Colin Dolan

Speed of Sound – Wednesday 5 April

Join us this week as we break the ice! First, we’re joined by Colin Dolan from the Mental Health FA, who will be discussing how sport can melt away negativity and fancy some activity in the snow? What inspires disabled people to try snow sports?

1 in 4 of us will be affected by mental health.  

23% off GPs work is around mental health

I was 18 and I was ready to die

These were some of the quotes taken from a recent conference organised by Colin Dolan for the Mental Health FA on Tuesday 7 March held in one of the Palace of Westminister’s Committee rooms. Over 100 people from across the UK, including small disability groups, NHS Trusts, Community Development officers and many more listened intently to a selection of speakers around the area of mental health.  Colin has agreed to come on to explain the importance of receiving this recognition within sport for its direct impact on mental health within local and national groups.  How having the support of prominent footballers like Stan Collimore and MP Andy Burnham helps raise the awareness of this growing problem.

Then, we’ll be visiting, theoretically, Snozone’s slopes as we look back on the first of several snow sports days that were hosted by British Blind Sport last Saturday. We will be joined by Logan Gray, Strategic Relationship Manager at British Blind Sport. From registering participants, guiding participants to and in the venue, to conducting the evaluations once the Snozone instructors had delivered the sessions, Logan has done it all and will be able to brief us on the latest.
