    Mental Health "Get your Head in the Game" with Dean Arrowsmith

    Mental Health "Get your Head in the Game" with Dean Arrowsmith

    We are joined by Co-Founder and Chairperson of the Head in the game group to discuss the organization and Mental Health within the game. Chicago based Dean gives us a great insight in to the group and the topic of mental health, we discuss mental health in football as well as being a football coach abroad and what it all means.  

    Head in the Game was initially set up by a group of Dundalk FC fans, with the goal of starting a positive conversation about mental health and well-being in the Irish football community, and wider Irish society.

    We want to provoke an important discussion and create awareness about mental health while breaking down the stigma that comes with it.

    In recent years we have seen the topic of mental health come to the forefront more than ever before.

    However, common mental health issues such as depression and anxiety still have negative connotations attached to them, and admission of suffering is still perceived as a weakness by many.

    We are very aware League of Ireland clubs have initiated localized discussions and campaigns, but we believe a general campaign like Head in the Game would be the first of its kind.

    The public backing of clubs and the people involved with these clubs would be powerful for stimulating the involvement of stakeholders within the league, and the FAI.
