Covid 19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions that are in place, The Changing Room is unable to deliver any of our face to face activities. We recognise this is frustrating and hope to be back as soon as possible. In the meantime we are continuing to deliver ‘Virtual Drop-in sessions’ over Zoom. If you are interested or feel you’d benefit by joining one of out calls, please contact thechangingroom@samh.org.uk for the required details.

You can also visit SAMH’s Coronavirus Hub for information and advice regarding managing your mental health and wellbeing during these challenging times.

12 Week Course

This popular course is a great opportunity for men who want to look after themselves and improve their social connections and overall wellbeing to come into the football environment at Easter Road Stadium and be part of a team that encourages better mental health. Football is central to all that goes on within The Changing Room with activities including A Question of Football Quiz, Walking Football, a motivational guest speaker from Hibernian FC, pitch side walks and more. All sessions are designed to be enjoyable for participants to ensure the programme has a lasting, positive impact on the men who participate. The course is completely free and ensures you’re part of a team tackling mental health! Sessions normally run from 6pm – 7:30pm.

You can read the experiences of one of our previous participants here.

We hope to run more of these courses in the new year – please check back again for further details.

Drop-in sessions

The Changing Room offers welcoming drop-in sessions every second Monday. This is an opportunity to meet fans and relax in the heart of Hibernian Football Club. You’ll be able to discuss the weekend’s football, guy stuff and mental health and wellbeing. These sessions are a great chance to unwind and take some time for yourself at the start of the week. You’ll meet with volunteers who have been a part of The Changing Room from the very beginning and will be happy to talk Hibs, football or mental health with you. There’s no judgment at The Changing Room and the project promises to treat all guys who come along with respect.

These sessions start at 6pm and usually last for 90 minutes. Entry to the stadium can be accessed at the West Stand main reception, where someone will be there to meet you. For more information on The Changing Room’s drop-in sessions, please contact thechangingroom@samh.org.uk or 07966 121146.

Team Talks

The Changing Room’s ‘Team Talks’ are mental health awareness sessions that aim to tackle misconceptions and stigma, while kicking-off positive conversations about mental health and wellbeing.  Team Talks provide an opportunity to learn about mental health and presents a challenge to the typical attitudes held within Scottish culture. These informative, thought-provoking sessions are open to all and if you are interested in finding out more or would like to book a Team Talk session for a group or organisation, please contact thechangingroom@samh.org.uk or call 07966 121146.
