Time to Talk Day | Mental Health Hub reminder for supporters

3rd February 2022
Mental health hub launch

On Time to Talk day, Swansea City wants to remind supporters that this Friday marks the introduction of a ‘One-Stop Mental Health Hub’, in conjunction with the Jac Lewis Foundation, South Wales Police, Samaritans and Swansea City Council.

Last September, Swansea City and the Jac Lewis Foundation announced a fortnightly mental health hub to provide a preventative wellbeing and mental health service to the local area.

Due to the demand of this service and the importance of supporting those with mental health difficulties, the ‘One-Stop Mental Health Hub’ has been created.

This service is being funded by the club’s majority shareholders, Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien, together with director and investor Jake Silverstein, and aims to offer Swansea City supporters, along with local residents, the opportunity to attend more regular drop-in sessions facilitated by qualified counsellors to receive professional help and support for mental health difficulties.

The sessions will now also allow attendees the opportunity to receive practical advice and access to a number of other services to support them.

Sessions will be hosted every Friday between the hours of 9am and 5pm at the Swansea.com Stadium, with the first being hosted on Friday, February 4. During these times, there will be members of the Jac Lewis Foundation, South Wales Police, Samaritans and Swansea City Council in attendance and available to provide professional support.

Anyone can make an appointment in advance if they wish by emailing jaclewisfoundation@gmail.com, or alternatively you are welcome to turn up on the day of the hub to speak to someone. This email address above is also there for anyone who wishes to speak to someone now.
