We all have Mental Health and Walking Football Scotland is encouraging groups to be more aware of mental health, by connecting with other players at their next walking football session. Putting five minutes aside to ask someone how they are doing is a simple and easy first step to take.
It’s good to talk about mental health, and this Wednesday the 10th of October is World Mental Health Day, let’s make an extra effort and take a step towards better mental health and awareness.
Walking football brings benefits simply by playing, Health, Social Isolation, Camaraderie and Banter to name a few.
Gary McLaughlin chairman of WFS said “Being active is good for us physically, but it is more than that, it has been proven to have a positive effect on our mental health and well being. That is why we are encouraging our members and groups to make an extra effort and promote World Mental Health Day.”
Let us know if your session spoke about Mental Health.
We are looking for centres across Scotland to get involved.
Let’s celebrate good mental health and do something positive to prevent bad mental health.
