It’s #TimetoTalk – Join the campaign


On Thursday 5th February, the PFA will be supporting #TimetoTalk Day.

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year - but nearly 9 out of 10 people who experience them say they face stigma and discrimination as a result.

Mental Health is something that impacts everyone, football players included! Show your support by tweeting, using the hashtag #TimetoTalk and encouraging others to get involved.

#TimetoTalk Day encourages supporters to get talking about mental health by taking 5 minutes to have a conversation.

By talking about mental health more often, we are ending the silence and breaking down the stigma and discrimination surrounding the subject.

The PFA has a 24/7 helpline that is available 365 days of the year if members need someone to talk to, as well as a nation-wide network of 48 counsellors for current and former players to access.

PFA members can speak with us privately and in confidence:
