Heads Together and The Football Association teamed together to launch Heads Up in 2019; a campaign designed to generate the biggest-ever conversation around mental health.
Heads Up will harness the influence and popularity of football to help show the world that mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and will build on the decades of work to tackle the stigma and drive the conversation on mental health.
While it’s aimed at everyone including players, supporters, friends and families, it’s widely recognised that football is a uniquely powerful way to reach men in particular. Men are three times more likely to commit suicide than women, with suicide the most likely cause of death for men under the age of 45. The campaign hopes to encourage more men to feel comfortable talking about their mental health, and feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times.
Liverpool County FA is committed to ensuring that all involved with grassroots football locally have access to all the support they need to ensure they take care of their mental health, whilst it works to ensure a greater understanding of mental health matters for coaches working with players.
