The 12th Man campaign is built on the positive values of a football crowd supporting their team when they are struggling for form and aims to raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma that can be a barrier to men seeking help. Free Mental Health First Aid training and ongoing support is available to business and interest groups where men make up a large part of their employee or client base such as barbers, pubs, tattoo shops, cycling clubs and football clubs.
