๐Ÿ’™ People experience mental health problems all year round, not just on #BlueMonday ๐Ÿง  Our #BeAGameChanger programmeโ€ฆ https://t.co/zr3MI2FQn1

Be a Game Changer

Mental health problems are common. In fact, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem each year; thatโ€™s an average of 7,500 fans at every Sunderland AFC game.

So, weย allย need to look after our mental health, just like we look after our physical health.

Thatโ€™s why, weโ€™ve joined forces with Newcastle United Foundation to launch #BeAGameChanger, encouraging people across our region to talk openly about mental health and provide tips on how to improve your physical and mental wellbeing.

So, whether youโ€™re in a Park or a Stadium, #BeAGameChanger and kick-off a conversation about mental health.

If we talk more openly about mental health, we can take steps to look after ourselves, and each other, more effectively.

As football fans we keep a close eye on our team โ€“ and we know you keep a close eye on your mates too. So, we know thatโ€™s the best way to get the ball rolling and start talking. Together, we can save lives.

Join the conversation and become a member of ourย Be a Game Changer Sunderland Facebook Page.
