It Takes Balls To Talk

balls to talk

'It Takes Balls To Talk' is a mental health awareness campaign launched in Coventry and Warwickshire to encourage people, particularly men, to talk about how they feel. The campaign uses sporting themes and key messages to direct people to help and support, when they need it. 

Mental health issues can affect anyone and can be caused by a number of factors, including bereavement, unemployment, finance and debt issues, family and relationship problems, social isolation, low self-esteem, drug and alcohol issues and many other personal factors. Suicide continues to be three times more common in men than in women. It is also the single most common cause of death in men under 45.
