FORMER footballer Jon Burgess is aiming to help men understand the importance of their mental health.
The wellbeing coach has teamed up with mental health champion Dean Worrell, Leamington Football Club and their main sponsor BPS to run a free mental health awareness evening for men at Brakes’ Harbury Lane ground on Wednesday March 4, at 7.30pm.
The evening will help men understand the importance of taking care of their mental health and also raise money for Myton Hospice.
Jon, who played for Brakes, said: “I really believe that now is a very important time for men to start talking about their mental health and supporting each other.
“Our intention is to help give men the strength and courage to speak out and to educate them on how they can take better care of themselves. To have such a valuable event whilst raising money for such an important local charity like Myton Hospice will make it a great evening.”
Places can be booked on eventbrite, emailing [email protected] or texting 07787 502544.
Jon is also raising money for Myton Hospice by completing a trek to Machu Picchu in Peru. Visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jon-burgess4 to donate.
