Across Lincolnshire, more than 75% of all suicides are men. Help us to make a difference
Donations to our charity go directly to our new mental health project Team Talk
Lincolnshire has a male mental health crisis and in 2018 recorded a record number of suicides across the county with a similar majority as the national average. 63% of male suicides in Lincolnshire had a pre-existing mental health condition.
Team Talk is Lincoln City Foundation’s Mental Health programme for men aged over 18. We are utilising our brand and working with fellow Lincolnshire sports partners to tackle this important issue by providing a safe space, giving hope and breaking down those barriers that prevent men asking for help.
Through a wide range social and sporting activities, online interaction and the creation of a team environment, we will help you to look ahead and plan an inspired future.
Opening in Spring 2021, our Lincoln hub will be based at LNER Stadium. It is the ambition, that through investment and fundraising support we can reach individuals all over Lincolnshire who might include students, young professionals in high pressured environments, construction staff and those working in agriculture, divorced or separated men and males that are looking for peer-to-peer support after retiring from their career. We also look to work with those recovering from substance or alcohol misuse, or gambling addictions.
Working with multi-agency professionals, we can link men to the help they need, when they need it, and when they are ready to accept it.
