Between Monday 13 and Friday 17 May 2019, Liverpool County FA is fully supporting Mental Health Awareness Week – and will be hosting a number of events across Merseyside aimed at bringing together people with experience of mental health issues through football.
The benefit that physical activity has on mental health has been well documented, with exercise proven to reduce stress and improve individuals’ mood, lifting people’s self-esteem and lowering the risk of depression and anxiety.
During Mental Health Awareness Week, four events will be available for people across Merseyside to get involved in.
Monday 13 May
Sefton Park (meet at Foundations Café), 1.30pm – 4.00pm
Tuesday 14 May
