CETMA FOOTBALL TEAM TO TACKLE MENTAL HEALTH STIGMA
Cetma is setting up a football team for 16+ males in Llanelli. The purpose of the team is to fight Mental Health stigma and to provide somewhere where males can attend that will be non-competitive but friendly and provide fitness.
“Sadly there have been a lot of Young People (11 to 25), mostly males attempting to take their own lives in Carmarthenshire.” Said Jonathan Williams CETMA MD
“To help combat this, CETMA has is training 2 volunteers up to become counsellors and we’re also working with local organisations to put in place a support network so that we can help as many people as possible.”
The Team is affiliated with the West Wales Football Association but will not compete in a league, but will instead play friendlies against organisations and businesses.
“Newport County Community side have already offered us a friendly!”
The team will start training on Monday April 9th at Penygaer Playing Fields at 6pm. If anyone would like to join or volunteer on the team then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit
