Meet Robyn. Robyn is 43 years old and in 2016 was diagnosed with an extreme form of PTSD as a result of a horrific trauma some years before. Robyn suffers from flashbacks, feeling lonely and at one point became too ashamed to talk about her symptoms. Like many others suffering from PTSD she started to isolate herself and felt like giving up on many occasions.
Now, she’s on a mission to spread the word on how playing tennis has helped her immensely by meeting new people and eventually gave her some relief from the constant battle in her head.
Breakpoint 2019 is designed to encourage others to use sport, particularly tennis, to help their recovery and feel better. Robyn believes that sadly there is still too much stigma attached to mental health conditions and hopes that by raising funds to offer free sessions to anyone suffering from mental health, physical, learning or sensory disabilities she can help combat this.
Let’s do all we can to help Robyn achieve her goal by donating any amount here. Thank you!
