How the physical benefits of football help in improving our mental health

The mental health awareness week begins on Monday, 8th May to Friday 17th May and we hope it offers solutions to those struggling to cope with the demands of life.

Beginning from today, Monday, the mental health awareness week will be aiming at educating people on how to thrive with good mental health. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, we will seek to uncover why few of us are thriving with good mental health.

A regular exercise like playing football can boost your self-esteem and help you concentrate, sleep and feel better. Football helps to keep the brain and your other vital organs healthy, and is also a significant benefit towards improving your mental health. Experts believe exercise releases chemicals in your brain that makes you feel good.


QPR academy coach Manisha Tailor began her football coaching career after her football-mad twin brother drifted into depression during his teenage years following a sustained campaign of bullying.

Tailor told sky sports that “Becoming a coach allowed me to find something to help trigger his recovery and it has also allowed me to deal with my emotions and allowed me to have emotional release.”

Tailor insists football provides people suffering from poor mental health with a sense of belonging. She was awarded as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her services to football.

Getting involved with football isn’t about just watching or playing a game, it provides a platform for networking which can help people suffering from mental illness a sense of belonging and relieving them from emotional stress.
