Here at SUFC, we take the welfare of our players seriously especially when it comes to mental health. We are committed to ensure that our players are not only physically safe, but also mentally safe.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from a mental illness and you are in need of support, there are a number of free community resources that helps you to identify the signs of mental illness, what it means and options available for you to get the help you need.
Some people may have suicidal thoughts when things are too hard and painful. If you feel like life is no longer worth living, it's really important to seek immediate help. With help, you can overcome these thoughts and stay safe.
You are not alone. There is always someone to hear your pain and problems, and to help you keep safe. Here are a number of links to organisations that provide support services to people suffering mental health issues or family members looking for assistance to help a loved one.
