Leighton Baines & mental health in football

Wednesday 29 August 2018

A host of stars including Leighton Baines have been talking about their experience of mental health with The Mind Map, a Liverpool ONE Foundation funded social enterprise.

Founded by Mental Health First Aid instructor, Phil Bridges, The Mind Map normalises mental health through online magazine content and events. The Mind Map aims to help young people navigate local mental health services through their free service directory.

Phil Bridges, the Founder of The Mind Map said:

“I have spent the past year developing The Mind Map with clinical input from NHS Liverpool CCG and Mersey Care. Our in-conversation with Leighton Baines is typical of the work we deliver – working with popular artistic and sporting talent to further vital discussions around mental health. We are now campaigning to train teachers in Youth Mental Health First Aid.”

The Mind Map have been providing workshops for young people at Merseyside Youth Association and are working with Liverpool John Moores University to research the mental health support currently available for UK students.

You can support The Mind Map to train teachers in Youth Mental Health First Aid via their Crowdfunder.
