Footballers tackle mental health issues

Football training

We have teamed up with Places for People Leisure to offer a new mental health support programme at The Triangle leisure centre in Burgess Hill.

Run by the Crawley Town Football Club Community Foundation, the ‘Move the Goalposts’ programme is open to anyone who is experiencing or has a history of mental health issues, including stress, anxiety or depression. Staff members from the CTFC Community Foundation are trained to offer guidance and support on physical and mental health matters.

The programme is split into two halves with the first hour providing a chance to talk with the group about anything that may be troubling you. The second half focusses on physical activity and often includes a friendly game of football.

The group meet at Costa Coffee in the Triangle leisure centre, Burgess Hill every Thursday at 10am. If you are interested in taking part then you can either turn up on the day or email Darren Ford, Community Development Manager darrenford@crawleytownfc.com for more details.
