As part of World Mental Health Day, Lincoln City Foundation and Lincoln City Football Club are excited to announce our partnership with a local mental health counselling service Listening 2 U.
The aim of the partnership is to eliminate stigma attached to men’s mental health and encourage Lincoln City fans and the local community to speak out about mental health.
The Foundation hopes this partnership will enable their mental health provision to grow and kick start some exciting new initiatives to help improve the wellbeing of individual community.
Kirsten Parslow, Health and Inclusion Officer at Lincoln City Foundation said: “We want to encourage our community to talk about mental health. Mental health effects everyone, but not many feel confident enough to speak out or know where to find the help that can make a positive difference to their lives.”
A quote from Liam Scully Chief Executive of Lincoln City Football Club: “As a Club we are highly aware of the challenges facing individuals in today’s society and that men are especially slow to report mental health issues. We are keen to do all we can to encourage colleagues and the wider community to seek any help that they need to improve and maintain their mental health. As part of this drive, we are working alongside Lincoln City Foundation and Listening 2 U who offer much needed support in this important area”
Kerry Gresham, Consultant Psychotherapist from Listening 2 U said: “We are passionate about changing the face of men’s mental health, working with Lincoln City Football Club and Lincoln City Foundation we hope to reach out to men on masse, week in, week out!”
