Stourbridge FC are running three mental awareness meetings over the course of this season.


Vice-chairman Andy Bullingham commented: "As a football club we now look after circa 350 children and 54 managers and coaches. I decided that we have a duty of care to those people under our wing. I also believe this applies to the other local clubs in the borough.

"Mental health and wellbeing is obviously high on the FA agenda but they do not have the ability to get grassroots football teams to embrace it. We are therefore encouraging local clubs to join us in both educating and acknowledging the issues and signs of mental health.

"We are therefore running 3 separate meetings in September 19, January 20 and May 20. These dates being important to mental health as they follow holiday season and back to school, post Christmas and pre-examination issues. This is not about Stourbridge FC but about all local football and sports organisations embracing the issues around mental health. "
