Tranmere Rovers are launching a campaign to encourage their fans to talk about mental health to mark Mental Health Awareness Month.

The campaign entitled, Tranmere’s Team Talk, is encouraging fans to use their spare time around a matchday to talk to those around them.

Launching this evening, Friday October 8, at the fixture against Colchester, fans will see posters displayed around Prenton Park stadium, in the programme and on social media.

A promotional video featuring players and manager, Micky Mellon, will also be played over the tannoy during half time.

In the video, players reveal: “One in four are affected by mental health in our lifetime. Meaning approximately 1,750 people inside Prenton Park on every match day will be affected in some way”.

Manager Mellon said: “I use my time before, during and after a match to give my team a talk, so why don’t you.

“Whilst you’re standing in the queue, sat in your seat, or walking out of the ground use that time to ask the person next to you if they’re okay. That one small question can save a life.”

Players will also be encouraging the campaign’s message by warning up in Tranmere’s Team Talk t-shirts.
