Yesterday proved no ordinary training session for Assistant Head Coach Richard O’Kelly and Brentford winger Sergi Canós. To mark World Mental Health Day, the duo ran a unique football coaching session for adults with mental health problems at Brentford’s training ground. 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. The Sky Sports cameras were also at Jersey Road to catch the session.
We all have mental health and we need to look after it, just as we would our physical health. Find out more from EFL charity partner Mind Charity tinyurl.com/y8eybv6k
