Sometimes we all need a little support.
In 2018 Lincolnshire, recorded a record number of suicides across the county with a similar majority as the national average.
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 from asking for help. The ambition is that through investment and fundraising support, we can reach individuals all over Lincolnshire. This might include students, young professionals in high pressured environments, construction staff and those working in agriculture, divorced or separated men and males looking for peer-to-peer support after retiring from their career.
Sadly, suicide is on the rise...
We need to reverse this devastating pattern.
We are here to help you when you are ready. Do not struggle alone.
