LFC Foundation and Red Neighbours are supporting Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 with a week-long programme of activities.
Run by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from May 13 to 17 and this year’s theme, #BeBodyKind, is focused on promoting positive body image.
During the campaign, Mental Health Foundation will be publishing new research, campaigning for change and offering practical tools and advice.
LFC Foundation will include positive body image content across all of its programmes throughout the week, with individual messages tailored to suit the specific age group and demographic of the sessions.
Research shows awareness and issues around body image can start at an early age, so LFC Foundation will also be running a primary-school focused ‘Mighty Minds’ day at Anfield alongside club mascot Mighty Red.
Similarly, Red Neighbours will be incorporating body image messaging into various sessions during the campaign, including walking football and walking netball.
Red Neighbours’ walking football team will also be joined by mental health charity Imagine Independence’s walking football team for a match at Anfield Sports and Community Centre on Friday, which will be followed by a tea and talk session in the centre’s cafe.
