AFC Bournemouth under 12s participate in mental health workshop

AFC Bournemouth’s under-12s took part in a mental health and wellbeing workshop, which sought to support resilience and positive mental health.

The event was held as part of the partnership activity between AFC Bournemouth and Bournemouth University.

Bournemouth University is the Official Higher Education Partner of AFC Bournemouth, and the partnership is celebrated each year through the BU Big Match, which takes place today against Nottingham Forest.

The theme of this year’s BU Big Match is mental health and resilience, as a way to highlight Children’s Mental Health Week (February 7-13). The workshop with the girls’ team included a discussion on where to go if you need support, how to deal with pressures on the pitch and how to be resilient in everyday life.

The AFC Bournemouth team hosting the event was joined by Cherries player Abby Jones. Defender Abby worked her way up the girls’ team through the academy and was able to talk to the girls about some of her experiences on the field and how she deals with pressure.

Steve Cuss, Community Director for AFC Bournemouth, said: “We always offer off-field workshops to support them on the field. It’s really important that we have these open discussions about important topics like mental health, talking about things we can do in everyday life to support our mental health.”
