Football therapy sessions in Halewood

Do you or anyone you know experience mental health issues, or problems such as low mood or self-esteem and are worried about being at risk of developing mental health issues?

Get fit, make friends and consider being one of the new players for [me] united, a football therapy project that aims to help improve mental wellbeing.

Being part of the project means you can have fun playing matches led by a FA qualified coach, and use playing sport as a way to keep active and meet other people while fighting your mental health issues. You will also receive support for your mental wellbeing and will be given information about how you can get help.

[me] united wants to remove barriers that may prevent those suffering with poor mental health from playing sport such as finance issues, physical limitations and lack of motivation. This means that the sessions are free, all abilities are welcome and that the games are not serious or aggressive. You don’t have to be referred or receive any treatment for your mental health to be able to join.

Following its success, the therapy project is being expanded and brought to Halewood with the first weekly session starting on Thursday 8 March 2018 from 7pm to 8pm at Halewood Leisure Centre.

If you’re interested in joining [me] united, email matthew@meunited.co.uk or call 07554 362 920.
