Can you help raise awareness of mental health support?

15 August 2022

Each year the International Association for Suicide Prevention marks 10 September as World Suicide Prevention Day. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of suicide prevention, tackle the stigma that prevents people from seeking help when in distress, and support and signpost people in need to sources of support. 

COVID-19 and cost of living issues have had a significant impact on a lot of people, but some have experienced more significant changes in circumstances which has affected their mental health.

To raise awareness of the support available we are again linking with football clubs in the area. We'll be visiting matches at Chesterfield FC, Alfreton Town, Belper Town, Matlock Town and Sheffield FC and we're looking for volunteers to talk to fans and hand out information.

We’re looking for around 30 volunteers for the Chesterfield match and around 8 for each of the other matches. We’ll be meeting around one-and-a-half hours ahead of the matches and you can get stay and watch the match for free if you would like to.

If you're interested, please complete a form to tell us at which match/es you would like to help out.
