Town committed to help tackle mental health issues

Sponsored by

Earlier this week, several senior members of staff from Fleetwood Town and the Community Trust completed a half-day Mental Health First Aid course, which was delivered by the EFL, so they are better equipped to help battle mental health issues.

The Club are committed to supporting members of the Cod Army, and the wider community across the Fylde Coast, as mental health plays a pivotal role in the lives of many across the world, whether that be personally or with those closest to us.

It is commonly known that 1-in-4 people struggle with their mental health, whereas of 77% of men have suffered with negative signs and symptoms of their own mental wellbeing.

Our charitable arm, Fleetwood Town Community Trust provides a range of health provisions, such as “Talking Men” encouraging men to come together to openly talk about their struggles, offering comfort and stability each week.
