HRH The Duke of Cambridge commended Hendon FC on their mental health outreach work

FA President, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, visited Silver Jubilee Park last week to congratulate Hendon FC on their mental health outreach work.

And, on World Suicide Prevention Day, we take a closer look at what the Southern League club are doing to help players improve their mental health:


The FA have partnered with Heads Together to spark the biggest conversation around mental health.

While the conversation around mental health has grown significantly in recent years, mental health problems remain one of the biggest issues in society today.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 and it's time this changed.

Football is our national game. Millions of people watch and play football ever year, and many of us won’t go a day without talking about it.

With our new campaign, Heads Up, we want everyone to feel comfortable talking about their mental health, in the same way they would about football, and feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times.

Heads Up will illustrate that everyone should prioritise maintaining their mental fitness as well as their physical fitness.
