Aberdeen FC Community Trust is delighted to bring back ‘The Changing Room’ to Pittodrie. This innovative 12-week-course invites men to step down from the stands and into the heart of their club, with the aim to improve mental health.

The programme targets men aged 30-64 and works to help them self-manage their own mental health whilst also giving them access to a strong support network. The course uses football, along with a variety of other activities, to explore areas that may challenge them, such as how they view themselves, think and feel.

‘The Changing Room’ is a Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) project that works in partnership with the SPFL Trust and football club charities and trusts, across Scotland. It is also funded by the global men’s health charity, Movember.

AFCCT will be running the programme for a third block, free of charge, from September to November with 16 spaces currently available.
