The Changing Room

The Changing Room is a two-year pilot SAMH project working with Scottish Professional Football League Trust (SPFL Trust) and Hibernian Football Club to engage with men in the heart of their community, to take action for their mental health.

Service Description

The programme hopes to increase social connectedness and reduce loneliness and isolation of men in their middle years (30-64), as well as enabling men to better self-manage their own mental health and support each other.

This is the first mental health project to be funded in Scotland by the global men’s health charity, Movember Foundation. The project is run by SAMH staff and volunteers.

The Changing Room offers 12-week peer programmes and various activities for men in their middle years.
