(CW for talk of suicide) A short film (on X) made by Wolverhampton Wanderers FC. The club's Head 4 Health initiative.

Here's something similar from Norwich City. Warning, devastating! So good to see football clubs talking about this. Thanks for posting, Martha.

I was really moved by the Wolves film (and the Norwich one, too). It was such a simple idea and so impactful. It's also so good to see people opening up about mental health issues more nowadays, and especially in the highly-charged and traditionally masculine and working class world of football fans.

It isn't my usual area of interest but I've been going through it a bit myself this week and this little film just made me glad we can talk about mental health issues more openly. I thought it might perhaps help someone else seeing it on here too.

Oh my goodness. Thank you for this. It is…reassuring? Affirming? Deeply moving.
