Release The Pressure
On World Suicide Prevention Day (10th September) Margate Football Club is proud to announce plans to support the Release The Pressure campaign during the 2019/20 season.
Funded and created by the Kent and Medway Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), Release the Pressure urges people to seek help by calling Freephone 0800 107 0160 where support is available from trained and experienced staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The campaign website www.releasethepressure.uk also includes case studies from men in Kent who have turned their lives around after attempting suicide.
The club is helping support the campaign by displaying a board at Hartsdown Park besides including a full-page advert in every home match day magazine during the season.
General Manager, Deny Wilson, explained;
“We are extremely proud to support the Release The Pressure campaign. We believe football plays a powerful role within the local community, it can bring people together and start important conversations; none more so than mental health.”
“By embracing and promoting this important initiative throughout the season, we hope to raise awareness, break down some barriers and support those who need it most.”
