Head 4 Health

Head 4 Health is a PLPFA (Premier League & Professional Footballers Association) funded project with part funding from City of Wolverhampton Council Public Health and Wolverhampton CCG.

The project aims to improve mental and physical wellbeing in males over the age of 18.

It is split into six-week cohorts, where participants attend twice a week in addition to a weekly drop-in session where individuals can talk in a safe and relaxed environment. At the end of the six weeks there are sustained sessions that participants can continue to attend called Head 4 Health Extra Time.

Each session consists of an informative workshop alongside some physical activity. The workshops include mental health awareness, cooking classes, signs/ symptoms, coping with stress, alcohol awareness and inspirational speakers. Physical activity sessions include badminton, golf, bowling, walking and table tennis.

There are a number of local partner organisations involved including NHS Healthy Minds, Recovery Near You, Wolverhampton Samaritans, Starfish, Mind at Work, Refugee and Migrant Centre and P3.

There are both daytime and evening courses available.
