Mental Health Awareness Workshop Announced For May 2024

The workshop is online and is set for Tuesday 21st May 2024 at 6pm

Lincolnshire FA are proud to announce our Mental Health Awareness Workshop, taking place from from 6pm to 7:30pm on Tuesday 21st May, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024.

Looking after your mental health is just as important as looking after your physical health. Mental health issues are incredibly common:

• 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 


• 1 in 5 people have suicidal thoughts
• 1 in 14 people self-harm
• 1 in 15 people attempt suicide

And suicide is the biggest cause of death in men under the age of 50 in the UK.

Mental health concerns are often harder to identify than physical concerns, which is why its vital coaches, teammates, referees and volunteers to understand how they can help.

The workshop, which will be co-delivered by a qualified mental health nurse, will provide a general introduction to mental health, the signs to look out for, and how to have discussions around mental health. All roles in football may find the workshop useful, though welfare officers may have a particular interest.

The workshop will be delivered online.
