Notts County Foundation has joined forces with Notts County FC and Notts County Women FC to promote the importance of people talking about how they’re really feeling this World Mental Health Day.
Men’s first team players Kyle Cameron, Richard Brindley and Sam Slocombe, and women’s captain Holly Fowler shared their thoughts on what good mental health means to them, why mental health is equally as important as physical health, and what advice they would give to someone who’s struggling with their mental health.
Sam Crawford, Head of Business Development at Notts County Foundation, said: “We all have mental health, and it’s vitally important that we make this a priority – not just on World Mental Health Day, but every day. Hearing Kyle, Richard, Sam, and Holly all discuss their own experiences and opinions surrounding mental health demonstrates that mental health can impact anyone at any time, regardless of who you are. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to work with Notts County FC and Notts County Women FC to show people that, no matter how it seems sometimes, you’re never truly alone.”
“Through our varying mental health-orientated programmes – Right Mind, On The Ball, Goals For Life, and #MinutesForMates, we aim to support men, women and young people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to prioritise and look after their mental wellbeing.”
Notts County Foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam, Richard, Kyle, and Holly for sharing their powerful messages this World Mental Health Day.
