Move For Your Mind

Chelsea Foundation is encouraging participants to ‘move for your mind’ as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.


Throughout the week, Chelsea Foundation will be providing a number of resources for all of its participants, raising awareness of the importance of mental health.

For primary school students, Chelsea Foundation has worked with Mental Health Foundation to provide a football-based resource for students across the UK to use.

That resource has been adapted for secondary school students and particularly Chelsea Foundation’s Chelsea Champions programme, which sees secondary schools work exclusively with Chelsea Foundation to improve emotional wellbeing and resilience in secondary school students.

In addition, Chelsea Foundation has produced an activity allowing all participants to follow a specific movement for each day during Mental Health Awareness Week.

Djordje Petrovic visited Chelsea Academy, a local school in which Chelsea Champions has been delivered since 2018, to pilot the Foundation’s activity for Mental Health Awareness Week.

Anne-Marie Smith, health and wellbeing manager at Chelsea Foundation, said: ‘Exercise is a key element to supporting our community’s mental wellbeing and Chelsea Foundation is excited to share this specific resource for Mental Health Awareness Week, providing different forms of exercise that can kick-start your journey to leading a more active lifestyle to support your mind.’

Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday 13 May until Sunday 19 May, culminating with Chelsea FC’s final fixture of the 2023/24 Premier League season.

At that fixture, Chelsea Foundation will be working alongside the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust in providing their Over the Line mental health hub. The initiative provides fans with free information, advice and support on a matchday.
