Herefordshire FA Supporting Mental Health

Herefordshire FA have appointed a new Mental Health Champion after attending a Mental Health First Aid Course

We are happy to announce that FDO Scott Russell completed his course in becoming Herefordshire FAs Mental Health First Aid Champion. We are delighted he has gained his new qualification and we hope he can help those who are suffering with their Mental Health to come forward and seek help. Statistics show that 1 in 4 people suffer from Mental Health and there are many charities and organisations that are on hand to help those affected.

Scott commented, “There is help out there, but not everyone knows where to look. There is a brilliant free mobile phone App you can download called ‘Hub of Hope’ which gives you the opportunity to find help and resources in your area, as well as being able to speak to someone on their ‘Talk Now’ section. It’s ok to talk and it’s my aim to help bring more awareness to all forms of Mental Health within Herefordshire football”  

If you are involved in Herefordshire football and you would like to talk with Scott about any concerns or issues please get in touch: Scott.Russell@HerefordshireFA.com or 01432 342179. Scott is also able to help coaches or volunteers who may have concerns about the mental health of players within their clubs.
