Chris Mitchell was a professional footballer from Stirling, who sadly took his own life at the age of 27.
Chris had a successful career spanning 10 years, playing across all Scottish divisions – including at Falkirk alongside Arfield – and represented his country at all underage groups, including seven appearances at Scotland Under-21 level. Chris also had a short spell playing in England.
In his honour, the foundation was established to raise awareness around mental health and wellbeing in professional football.
The services and support of the foundation will be available to players, ex-players and staff connected to professional Scottish football clubs; including those clubs within the Scottish Professional Football League, the Scottish Highland League, the Scottish Lowland League, the Scottish Women’s Premier League and associated youth academies.
The vision of the Chris Mitchell Foundation is to dispel the stigma associated with mental health in Scottish professional football and for it to be integrated into physical health and fitness training programmes.
The Chris Mitchell Foundation will bring to the forefront the need for the awareness of mental health and wellbeing within the Scottish professional football industry, by sharing knowledge and skills and improve learning, forging cohesive and sustainable partnerships, connecting and supporting service users and campaigning to raise awareness on a national scale.
