Ahead Of The Game mental health programme launched
The Irish Football Association (IFA) has launched a new programme to raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health. The association is working in partnership with Train 2B Smart Soccer and the TAMHI, MindSight, Inspire and Change Your Mind charities to deliver the Ahead Of The Game initiative.
It marked the launch of the programme with the release of a mental health and well-being guide which will be distributed to football clubs across Northern Ireland. The guide aims to support clubs and volunteers when dealing with mental health issues, with a focus on challenging the stigma and preventative measures.
