Mental Wellbeing


Dagenham & Redbridge FC

We are a family-friendly club who support everyone to be all that they can be. As a club, we would like to raise awareness of, and break the stigma around, mental health.

We believe that sport can play a huge role in tackling stigma and its effects:

• in breaking down boundaries between people with and without mental health problems

• creating social integrations and boosting self-confidence

• tackling physical health inequalities
