The Irish FA Foundation’s Mental Health Network is launching a social media campaign today to support World Mental Health Day (10 October).
The focal point of the campaign is a short video featuring Northern Ireland’s international players. The aim is to use the power of football to improve mental wellbeing by promoting the Five Steps To Wellbeing #Take5.
In recent months the Irish FA Foundation has been working to create a network of mental health champions who will work together to promote mental wellbeing and challenge the stigma around mental health.
The Mental Health Network includes groups like TAMHI (Tackling Awareness of Mental Health Issues) and SAMHI (Suicide Awareness & Mental Health Initiative) along with more than 100 football clubs from across Northern Ireland.
