Josh Banyard, Newcastle United Foundation, Be A Game Changer

"Newcastle United Foundation are doing such amazing work battling stigmas around mental health and I'm proud to be an active part of it," says Newcastle United fan Josh Banyard.

He cannot praise Newcastle United enough for the support he has received after admitting he needed to seek help.

The Newcastle United Foundation's Be A Game Changer programme reaches out to men aged between 18 and 44 in a bid to get more men to talk about their wellbeing.

Despite appearing happy to friends and family, Josh was struggling with his mental health but now credits the Newcastle United Foundation with helping him turn his life around.

He regularly attends the Foundation's men's support group, "Howay Inn", and that allows him to share any concerns over the way he is feeling.

He said: "To find a group full of like-minded people has been amazing. It has completely changed my outlook on life and has quite simply rescued me from a dark place."
