Clydebank F.C. and Breathing Space, Scotland’s mental health phoneline, have renewed their partnership for the 2016-17 season.

The Breathing Space logo will feature on the back of first team shirts, with banners and other signage promoting the Breathing Space phone number at Holm Park.

Tony McLaren, Breathing Space National Coordinator said:

“We’re pleased to be working again with Clydebank F.C. to promote good mental wellbeing across West Dunbartonshire and beyond.

Young men in Scotland often find it difficult to talk about their worries. The Breathing Space phoneline is available for anyone in Scotland feeling low, stressed or anxious.

We’re delighted that players and staff at the club are committed to getting the message out to ‘open up when you’re feeling down’.”

The Breathing helpline is staffed by over 40 fully trained advisors who take calls relating to a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties, loneliness, isolation, stress, anxiety and bereavement.

Many people suffering from low mood and depression feel particularly bad in the evenings; as a result the helpline is open from 6pm to 2am Monday to Thursday and 24 hours at the weekend (6pm on Friday to Monday 6am).
