Town out to raise awareness of mental health

The Club have marked World Mental Health Day with a powerful video featuring a number of first-team players.

The video aims to raise yet more on the importance of mental health, especially during these uncertain times we’re living in.

Blues are now into a third season of working closely with Suffolk Mind and Samaritans. In 2018, Luke Chambers visited the Samaritans branch in Ipswich to speak to their incredible volunteers.

Furthermore, in 2019, Luke and Flynn Downes sat down with Suffolk Mind’s chief executive, Jon Neal and Town fan, Jordan Hockold for an open and honest chat.

Both Suffolk Mind and Samaritans are undertaking some fantastic work in the community and during these unprecedented times, they need help and support so that they can continue to provide support to the communities of Suffolk.

Suffolk Mind are teaching young children how to look after their own mental wellbeing, whilst supporting adults who may be struggling with their own mental health.

The local charity are marking their 10th birthday this week and are encouraging people to donate £10, so they can continue to support the Suffolk community for a further 10 years and beyond.

The Samaritans are available day and night for anyone who is struggling to cope and needs someone to listen to without judgement or pressure.

Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide. £5 a month could cover the cost of a call for help for someone who is struggling to cope.

Prioritising mental health has never been more important than it is now.
