Invictus Wellbeing and FC Halifax Town are planning a new pilot initiative aimed at  boys aged 14-17 year old.

Football and Coaching will be led by Halifax Town and their professional coaching team whilst Invictus Wellbeing will provide its interventions through highly skilled and qualified mental health professionals.

Running three sessions of 5-aside football and peer led intervention sessions  between February and March (dates to be confirmed) these sessions will use football as a way of addressing issues such as anxiety, low mood, anger management and emotional regulation.

It is our belief that football can be an effective tool and vehicle for building confidence, self-esteem, community cohesion, resilience and importantly for this project, opening conversations around mental health and wellbeing.

These sessions will run at the Shay Stadium, Shaw Hill, Halifax HX1 2YS
