Kick off a conversation about mental health

Kick off a conversation about mental health

Football is coming together over two weekends in February to kick off the biggest ever conversation around mental health through football, in support of the Heads Up campaign.

The Heads Up Weekends, which are taking place on the 8-9 and 15-16 February, will see every football team from across the Premier League, English Football League, The National League, The Barclays FA Women’s Super League, The FA Women’s Championship and The FA Women’s National League dedicate their matches to Heads Up.

The weekends will highlight the power of talking as a way to support one another and normalise what can often be thought of as a difficult subject, with activities taking place at fixtures across the men’s and women’s football calendar.

The Heads Up weekends are another step in showing the nation that mental health is just as important as physical health, and it only takes a second to #KickOffAConversation.

Join the conversation using #KickOffAConversation and look out for more on @TheFA and @Heads_Together Twitter channels.
