Coppinger: I’m a massive advocate for getting things off your chest

13 December 2021

James Coppinger took part in the third shirt launch which promoted the message: mental health struggles aren’t always visible.

The club’s lead on mental performance has been very open about his experiences of mental health struggles and believes that speaking up is the biggest thing people who are struggling can do.

“Talking about mental health is massive. Sharing experiences, disappointments and successes - it’s the only way that I think you can get over certain things,” he said.

“I think mental health is something that everyone experiences – it’s an everyday occurrence and it’s part of life.

“I’m a massive advocate for getting things off your chest and the old saying that a problem shared is a problem halved.

“I think it’s important to speak to friends and family if you’re struggling but if you can’t do that CALM do great work and they are there to help you.

“It’s their responsibility to help people who are struggling, and I know it’s not easy, but if they’re there to help then why not reach out to them?”

£5 from every shirt sold will be donated to CALM.
