Details

*trigger warning* eating disorders is discussed on this podcast episode

Jess Robson is my guest today on the podcast and she is the driving force behind Run Talk Run. A global mental health support community that uses running as a means to facilitate peer support. Having experienced a difficult relationship with formal therapy, Jess found solace in opening up with ease whilst running and chose to open up that space to other people struggling with mental ill health. 

Jess is an advocate for making running less intimidating – without care for pace, without care for PBs – she believes running can simply be a means to connect with our peers.

We have a wonderfully honest conversation talking about her own issues with eating disorders during her teenage years, how bulimia is a chronic condition that needs to be managed, the importance of personal responsibility online as well as food and exercise as tools for health as well as harm.

Please do check out Jess’ website and if you’re experienced in grant writing or fundraising I think Jess would welcome the opportunity to talk!

Enjoy the show!

Summary

RUN TALK RUN: OUR MISSION

Our support groups exist to make both movement 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, but you don’t necessarily want to go to a GP or a therapist.

We think that peer support and community can help, and movement does a rather lovely job at facilitating those conversations for us.

There are so many reasons why running makes it easier to open up.

 

What an absolute pleasure to chat with Jess on the show – and an incredible community of support that Jess has built in Run Talk Run.

It seems especially relevant for me to be sharing this episode with you during Mental Health Awareness Week – it’s another amazing resource that any one of us can reach out to and take part in – please do check out Jess, her amazing work and their superb website with groups across the country!
