ICTFC show their support on World Suicide Prevention day

ICTFC players are proud to wear Mikeysline t-shirts to promote World Suicide Prevention Day on Friday 10th September

 

The first team will also wear the Mikeysline t-shirts during the warm-up for the match against Partick Thistle tomorrow as we promote the brilliant, invaluable and life-saving Highland charity Mikeysline who field calls from their centres throughout the Region.

ICTFC Sporting Director and Mikeysline Ambassador John Robertson said “We as a football club are committed to supporting the awareness of Suicide Prevention Day as we know that the Highland Region has a very high suicide rate compared to other parts of the country, especially amongst our young people and we will do our level best to continue to get the message out there that if you feel in anyway low or down, then please contact Mikeysline as there are people there to help and listen to you and let you know that it is OK not to be OK.” 

Emily Stokes, CEO, Mikeysline said: “The theme for this year’s World Suicide Prevention day is ‘Creating Hope through Action’ and it is absolutely wonderful to see ICTFC first team players and the club as a whole raising wider awareness on this crucial day to their fan base and the wider local commuinty, as well as highlighting the support that Mikeysline can provide to anyone who is struggling with their mental wellbeing or in emotional distress.”
