Normal service details...

The Changing Room has one goal – to promote men’s positive mental health through the power of the beautiful game.

Open to men aged 30 to 64, this 12-weeks programme offers participants free opportunities to meet up, engage in activities together and start positive conversations about their mental health and wellbeing.

The Changing Room is back with a new 12 week course at Tynecastle Park starting Tuesday 24 September!

Come along for a blether about the football, mental health and everything in between.

Here’s the thing - at the moment men are suffering. Really suffering.

In Scotland, men are two-and-a-half times more likely to die by suicide.

The Changing Room is using football to bring men together to tackle mental health. In the stadiums, in the stands, in fan forums, even in the queue for a pie and Bovril if you want. We just need guys to open up.

We all love a blether about the football, whether it’s pre-match tactics, the team selection, or post-match analysis with your pals. But men also need to get the stuff that’s bothering them off their chests. The Changing Room is here for you.

For further information, please get in touch.
