Joe Shaw

Matty Slinger, Phil Barton and Steven Simpson want to recapture their childhood memories of playing cuppy.

But it’s not as simple as that.

They also want to create a safe space for people to talk about anything that is troubling them.

And now, Moray Mental Health Football Club has now been launched.

The three men want to make a difference in the community after losing friends to mental ill health.

In this episode of the podcast, good friend Matty Slinger stops by the show to share how a simple idea of creating kick-abouts for folks to find community has grown into a full-fledged club that is helping to tackle the mental health stigma!

Here at Humans United FC we highlight stories of the beautiful game that need to be elevated and we couldn't be more proud of the work going on over at Moray Mental Health FC.

Enjoy!
