British Judo provide opportunities for all participants to be fully inclusive. BJA Inclusion, in addition to supporting all minority groups, has the remit to promote judo for all players that through statement cognitive disorder and or physiological type or infirmity, cannot aspire to the highest levels of the mainstream pathway.
At British Judo, we aim to promote a sustainable membership programme where all people have the best opportunity to have Positive Mental Health and wellbeing.
Positive mental health is a state of wellbeing in which every individual is able to realise their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can perform productively, and is able to contribute to their community.
We also aim to ensure there is appropriate support for those experiencing Mental Health Problems.
A Mental Health Problem is a pattern of behaviour, experiences, thoughts and feelings that causes significant distress and/or impairment of daily functioning and/or difficulties in relationships with others.
Such distress or impairments are most likely to be experienced over a period of time and are not easily alleviated by an individual’s typical coping strategies.
