The SPFL Trust is pleased to be offering further Mental Health First Aid Training in partnership with the Chris Mitchell Foundation.
Training is aimed at anyone who wants to help someone with mental health problems whether in a professional or personal capacity at a football club in Scotland.
Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is obtained.
Sessions are scheduled for Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Glasgow between November and May, next year.
Participation is open to club representatives from the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL), Highland and Lowland Football League, Women’s Premier League and Youth Academies. Representatives may include, but are not limited to:
- Club chaplains
- Support staff
The course is free and is run over two days and is facilitated by Mark Fleming, director and senior trainer at Positive Mental Health Scotland.
Mark delivers a bespoke NHS Scotland accredited Mental Health First Aid Course specifically for people working within the football industry, focusing on the unique pressures experienced by those involved in football.
