Mental Health

According to Mind (the National Association for Mental Health) 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England. 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England.

Footy Addicts presents the 2023 Mental Health Awareness Tournament! We’ve invited mental health charities to a panel discussion, offering everyone a unique chance to listen and learn. This is an open invitation to all players to be part of this enlightening dialogue. Together, we can shape a healthier, more understanding community.

United on and off the pitch!
