Head In The Game gives men in the local community the chance to come together and enjoy the beautiful game. Our mental health / football sessions are free and for men between the ages of 18-55 of ANY footballing ability.
Supported by experienced football & talking therapy coaches, each session has a focus on men’s mental health & wellbeing, providing an outlet in a secure and trusted environment across the United Kingdom.
Our 6 and 12 week programmes are typically funded, and supported by a local council, organisation or community project. We partner in as facilitators of mental health focussed football training sessions with a slight difference each week, all centred around helping reduce the pressures of life on men’s mental health and tackle the stigma about being open and honest to talk together.
We work in partnership with professional football club’s trusts and foundations. We are working with such club’s as: Millwall, Brentford, Maidstone United, Charlton Athletic and Tottenham Hotspur.
The overarching aim of our work is prevent suicide in the most vulnerable adult demographic in our communities.
