Mark Fleming delivers a bespoke NHS Scotland accredited Mental Health First Aid Course specifically for people working within the football industry, focusing on the unique pressures experienced by those involved in football.
Chris developed mental health issues, particularly depression and anxiety. Sadly, all the support from his family and friends could not deter him from ending his own life on the 7th May 2016, he was only 27. Mark is also the Chaplain Support Director of Scottish Football, working across the Scottish Premier League Football (SPFL), Highland Football League, Lowland League Football, Women’s Premier League and associated academies, where his objective is to develop the work of Sports Chaplaincy in Scottish football, a relatively new and ground breaking initiative within the football industry that has been hugely successful. Mark has also been engaged in numerous suicide interventions and helped individuals positively address issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, grief and unemployment.

The Chris Mitchell Foundation, in partnership with Mark Fleming, is offering football clubs the opportunity to take positive steps towards safeguarding the mental health and wellbeing of their players and staff, by offering a limited number of fully funded places for club representatives from the SPFL, Highland and Lowland Football League, Women’s Premier League and Youth Academies, to attend the NHS Scotland Mental Health First Aid Court. Course attendees will be issued with a certificate of attendance on successful completion, confirming 16 hours of CPD.
