Head’s First for Mental Health

The Sunderland AFC community is coming together to pledge its support for positive mental health, encouraging fans, staff and players to look after themselves and each other.

We have a host of useful resources available on this page to help you, your friends and family find the right support and live happier and healthier lives.

Please note: these services are not suitable for people needing immediate support.

Suicide feelings and thoughts are not your fault. They do not have to continue.

Matchday Mental Health Hub

Our new Matchday Mental Health Hub is the first of its kind in the UK and is provided by Branch Liaison Committee (BLC) and Washington Mind.

The Hub offers a free, informal and confidential drop-in service for home and away supporters on SAFC home matchdays at the Beacon of Light. Hosted by trained councillors from Washington Mind and a trained volunteer from the Branch Liaison Council, the Hub will support fans in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

To find out more you can watch a video from the launch on Sunderland AFC’s news page or email branchliaison@gmail.com

 

Be a Game Changer

We have 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.

As football fans we keep a close eye on our team – and we know you keep a close eye on your mates too.

For further information visit our dedicated Be a Game Changer page.

 

NHS Veteran’s Complex Mental Health Service

This is an enhanced local-community-based service based at the Beacon of Light, for ex-service personnel who have military-related complex mental health problems that haven’t improved with earlier care and treatment.

The service provides intensive care and treatment including, but not limited to, support for drug and alcohol misuse, physical health, employment, housing, relationships and finances, as well as occupational and trauma-focused therapies.

For further information visit the NHS mental health services page.
