CAHMS FOOTBALL

The Falkirk Foundation delivers a football based programme in partnership with NHS Forth Valley’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). The programme is a football based activity programme for young people aged between 7-16 years that are accessing the CAMHS service. The programme has been running since a very successful pilot was delivered in Spring 2019. The session is delivered alongside the CAMHS Occupational Therapy Advanced Practitioner that attends every session.

ABOUT CAHMS FOOTBALL

Scottish FA coaches

The session is delivered by Scottish FA coaches qualified in Coaching Para Footballers, alongside a fantastic group of volunteers that support the coaches. The programme has been a huge success, with up to 20 children attending on a weekly basis.

Welcoming environment

The coaches create a welcoming environment, whereby parents and players are encouraged to begin each engagement with a relaxed discussion on the highlights from the previous week, and to discuss the outline for that particular days delivery. The participants arrive at the stadium through the main reception and our ‘team meeting’ is held in one of the classrooms near the main pitch access.
