Mental health problems are common. In fact, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem each year; that’s an average of 7,500 fans at every Sunderland AFC game.
So, we all need to look after our mental health, just like we look after our physical health.
That’s why, we’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 you’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 – and we know you keep a close eye on your mates too. So, we know that’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 our Be a Game Changer Sunderland Facebook Page.
