Do One Thing for world mental health day
The EFL, Lincoln City FC and Lincoln City Foundation will once again come together with charity partner, Mind, to collectively mark today’s World Mental Health Day.
With Mind’s latest research revealing that more than 60% of adults and over two thirds of young people (68%) felt their mental health deteriorated during the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, encouraging conversations around our own mental health and that of others has never been more important.
Mind’s ‘do one thing’ campaign aims to inspire people to make one small change or take one action to look after their mental health. As part of the campaign, EFL Clubs will play their part and ‘do one thing’ to say thank you to someone deserving within their local communities.
Do One Thing
In support of Mind and World Mental Health Day we have partnered up with Lincoln City Football Club to give you the opportunity to #DoOneThing for a friend in need and nominate them for a surprise message from a First-Team Player.
You can also nominate your workplace for a surprise player visit, which could be a great morale boost for that deserving team
Nominations are now open and close on 17th October at 5 pm. We will select one lucky entry at random to receive a personalised message from one of our First Team Players.

Do One Thing For You
That one thing you could do to improve your mental health could be something as simple as taking a walk at the end of a difficult day.
Physical activity has a proven ability to enhance wellbeing. Even a simple burst of a few minutes' brisk walking can increase mental alertness, motivation and positive mood. Participation in regular physical activity can increase self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. we offer lots of different activities for people to get involved in, for a variety of different abilities and ages.
These activities are designed to help people improve their physical and mental wellbeing, while also giving people a great opportunity to meet like-minded people.
