Bolton Wanderers Community Trust is delivering Imagine Your Goals, a two-year programme funded by the Premier League and Sport Relief which aims to improve social inclusion and wellbeing for people across the UK with mental heath problems, as well as tackling discrimination and stigma.
The programme is being rolled out nationally this month to 16 Premier League Club Community Schemes in collaboration with Time to Change, and evaluated by the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College London.
The new programme aims to build on the success of the three-year Imagine Your Goals project run by the Everton Foundation in partnership with Mersey Care NHS Trust and the mental health charity Imagine.
Time to Change is England's most ambitious programme to end the discrimination faced by people with mental health problems, and improve the nation's wellbeing. Mind and Rethink are leading the programme, funded £16m from the Big Lottery Fund and £4m from Comic Relief.
There are two key elements to the delivery of the Imagine Your Goals, Bolton project, first is to provide an opportunity for people suffering with mental health illnesses to come together and take part in physical activities and secondary is to attend the season long match day experience we provide.
We also want to raise awareness of the Time to Change Campaign to end the stigma and discrimination faced by those suffering with mental health illnesses.
We welcome anyone over the age of sixteen to get involved regardless of ability, ethnicity or gender.
