Football's Awareness of Depression Football Community

Football's Awareness of Depression Football Community (FAD FC) is a registered organisation providing support to footballers from Professional level to Grassroots who are experiencing Mental Health issues or know someone who is.

FAD FC was set up in August 2012 and provides Professional Footballers, Managers, Coaches, Referees and any other person involved in Football with information on Mental Health. 

FAD FC are campaigning to make Mental Health First Aid training compulsory within the FA Level 1 Coaching Course syllabus, however, until this happens FAD FC continue to fundraise and use donations to cover the cost for football coaches to attend a 3 hour Mental Health First Aid Lite course.

The organisation operates a 24 hour support line for individuals who wish to speak to someone outside of their club about their issues.  

Visit the FAD FC website for further information.
