Brodie Stewart is our first ever Mental Health Liaison Officer. We are delighted that Brodie has accepted such an important role within the club and we look forward to working with him. As part of his role, Brodie will act as a point of contact for anyone within the club who has any concerns and will work closely with mental health charities to form a communications bridge between them and the football club. He will also liaise directly with all of our squads and coaching teams to raise awareness of the available support for individuals who area struggling with mental health issues and strengthen our bond with our charity partner, Mikeysline and other mental health charities. Brodie said: “I am delighted to have taken on the role. Mental health is a really important issue, particularly at this time when many people are struggling." “Talking about your feelings and admitting you are struggling is something which can be difficult, particularly among young men in a supposedly macho environment such as a football club. It is important we break down these barriers and make the players and everyone else aware at the club that it is OK to not be OK and to help where we possibly can." “I am looking forward to getting to know the players a bit better and working to raise awareness both within the football club and the local community of the great work done by Mikeysline and other mental health charities.” Club chairman Donald Matheson added: “It is so important to us as a club to break down the stigma attached to mental health among young males." “We want the guys to be able to feel they can express their feelings when they can and to speak up if they are struggling with anything. Having Brodie onboard will hopefully allow us to achieve that." “Brodie will also be joining our Management Committee as part of taking on this role and we are delighted he agreed to accept. I look forward to working with him and I am sure he will achieve great success with us.”
