information from hertfordshire FA
Earlier this year The FA and its partners united in an attempt to kick off the biggest ever conversation on mental health. This formed part of the wider Heads Up campaign, aiming to harness the influence and popularity of football to normalise the discussion of mental health issues and dispel the stigma that often surrounds them.
Since then the world has changed dramatically, with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting one everyone’s lives in ways we could not have expected. In challenging times like these, looking after both our physical and mental health is of the utmost importance.
