Mental Health Event – 24th February 2020 – A Message from Brentford Football Club

We are continuing to support the Duke of Cambridge and EFL’s Heads Together campaign after the designated weekend of the 8 February. The Middlesbrough game was part of our efforts to kick off the biggest ever conversation on mental health.

The players wore special warm-up shirts and the playing shirts had the Heads Up logo on the front. There were also messages in the match day programme and during the match.

Further to this, we are partnering with the Community Sport Trust to host a mental health awareness evening in The Hive on Monday 24 February to screen a short film called “Steve” which was created by Ben Avers whose close friend took his own life.

It’s a hard hitting film but also a good chance to bring fans and the local community together to talk about mental health especially that 75% of suicides in the UK are male.

Venue: The Hive, Brentford FC, Braemar Rd, Brentford TW8 0NT

18.30 arrival for a 19.00 screening to finish at 21.00

The screening is open to all but we do ask that anyone interested in attending please register at: www.brentfordfc.com/steve
