  1. Hi, I’m the founder of & Author at FAD FC, as well as a Motivational Speaker..

    My work with FAD FC (Football’s Awareness of Depression Football Community)

    Not only do I provide support to Footballers experiencing Mental Health issues, but I campaign to make Mental Health First Aid compulsory within the FA coaching course syllabus as well as within Schools/Colleges.

    I launched the Equality & Inclusion Football Academy in June 2014 which now hosts 2 Mental Health Football Tournaments per year, as well as weekly Football sessions for the NHS mental health patients, and 2 Mental Health Football teams which play in a Sunday League.

    Full details of my work at

    As a Mental Health sufferer myself, which stems from losing my career 19 years, I spiralled into severe depression, so severe, I was self harming, burning myself, drinking, taking weekly over doses etc, I know only too well how it feels to be at such a low, that the only way is to either drink, take drugs and/or self harm in other ways.

    I’m contacting you to ask if possible, if FAD FC can work with you and your service users somehow? Maybe I can offer Football sessions, or you can use our NHS sessions etc..

    It would be great to meet with you, or join your Committee board? I’m currently working with Sheffield & Hallamshire FA’s Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG), I’m a member of the UK Mini Football Association’s Executive Board (UKMA).

    I would love to support the Ben’s Centre using Football which has shown to be used a therapy for Mental Health issues.

    If you wish to contact me, my details are 01143 481562 or 07880965609 or email

    Kind regards
    Caroline Stokes
