Young people with mental
health needs, personally or through family/peers, are offered the opportunity
to gain accreditation as a Wellbeing Champion or Level 1 FA football coach.
Subsequently through this experience, and accredited recognition of their
understanding, we believe the participants will feel energised and empowered to
engage with community sports initiatives and facilitate conversations to reduce
the stigma surrounding mental health.
There is clear evidence from
the Time to Change campaign that direct social contact and conversations about
mental health can have a significant impact on reducing stigma and raising
mental health awareness.
