  • Frank Lampard who features in the short film narrated by Prince William

A video promoting the Heads Up campaign, which is narrated by Prince William and features including Frank Lampard, Dele Alli and Harry Maguire, will be shown to fans at stadiums and to those watching on television.

During the minute delay, fans will be encouraged to reflect on the positive impact 60 seconds can have on their own wellbeing or in supporting a friend or family member.

William, the president of the Football Association, says in the film: "In life, as in football, we all go through highs and lows". Clinically assured by the NHS, the plan recommends a range of evidence-based self-care actions for each individual, which are created to deal with stress, boost their mood, improve sleep and feel more in control - preventing these common mental health concerns escalating into more serious, clinical conditions. You know, the British "stiff upper lip" thing - that's great, and we need to have that occasionally, when times are really hard there has to be a moment for that.

"There are so many people struggling with their mental health, so I want to help people understand that they don't have to deal with it alone".

The goal? To start the "largest ever conversation on mental health" and encourage people, especially men, to feel comfortable discussing issues like anxiety, stress and depression.

As part of the Every Mind Matters campaign, you can complete a Mind Plan online which has been clinically assured by the NHS.
