To mark World Mental Health Day, Richard O'Kelly and Sergi Canos ran a unique football coaching session for adults with mental health problems at Brentford’s training ground on Tuesday. In attendance were players from the Hounslow Hawks FC, run by the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust and West London NHS Trust, and West London FC Football project, which provides football as therapy for patients who are living with a mental illness.
