Football, Prince William and mental health

In case you missed it… The Duke of Cambridge explores why British men struggle to talk about their emotions. Suicide remains the biggest killer of young men in this country.

Prince William continues to campaign to change the conversation around mental health in Britain.  As a football fan Prince William talks to players and fans to get men talking and break the taboo that surrounds mental health.

At the Foundation we encourage the men in our lives look out for their mental wellbeing and empower men to speak up and seek help if they need to talk.  Help is available and sometimes it is easier to talk to someone outside of friends and family to get a different perspective on a situation.

We’re here to listen

Opening up and being able to connect with someone to talk about your thoughts, worries and feelings can give yourself the time and space to reflect and adjust.

Our team of experienced counsellors have flexible appointment times and are able to provide phone and online counselling as a service to our communities during and beyond the Coronavirus lockdown measures.
