September 10th every year is World Suicide Prevention Day, and this year Rotherham United Community Trust and Rotherham United F.C. are supporting the Inside Out campaign.
On Saturday the 2nd of September, at the RUFC V Norwich City match, both teams will be walking out in t-shirts from the campaign. The campaign from If U Care Share (Inside Out | If U Care Share) encourages people to wear their clothes inside out for the day – a symbol to get their feelings out in the open and start conversations which will save lives.
Suicide remains one of the biggest killers of young men across the UK, with six people aged between 40 and 60 dying by suicide every week in the North East alone.
If U Care Share, a mental health and suicide prevention charity based in Chester-le-Street, has designed an ‘Inside Out’ t-shirt which is available to buy and will be worn by players from the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, WSL and numerous non-league teams throughout September.
We will be releasing photos and more information following the match. To find out more or to get involved, please see the press release below.
