This season Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA in partnership with LENSGO Visual media are launching the #KicktoConnect campaign celebrating the positive impact football can have on your mental health & well-being.
In the UK 1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem in any one year. Throughout the 2019/2020 campaign we will be shinning a light on groups & individuals who have compelling stories to share, which evidence the impact football has had on their mental health & well-being.
Earlier this month the FA launched their #Headsup campaign harnessing the influence & popularity of football to help show the world that mental fitness is as important as physical fitness, you can find out more about the #Headsup campaign here: http://www.thefa.com/about-football-association/heads-up.
The difference? our #KicktoConnect campaign will focus on local people & local stories.
During the campaign you are likely to hear from:
•Recreational Support Groups
•Community Foundation Trusts
•Professional Clubs or Players
Where can I see this?
We will be releasing a series of short films on the third Thursday of every month until March 2020. These short films will be available via our & partner organisations social media platforms.
What is the purpose?
• Raise awareness about the positive impact playing or watching our sport can have on your mental health & how it helps you connect with others
• Celebrate & raise awareness of local grassroots projects
How can I get involved?
We appreciate that there are many great stories out there worth celebrating, however we cannot feature everyone. If you would like to share your own story, a comment or promote the campaign please use #KicktoConnect via your social media platform.
