"The most fun i've had this year - really great job"

For #WorldMentalHealthDay 2016 the Millwall Community Trust hosted one of its largest mental health events with the likes of the Arsenal Community, Crystal Palace Foundation and Charlton Trust participating. Through the efforts of our disability development officer, Ben Perryman, the day was a resounding success.

Our Millwall Lion Hearts team, who have only trained together for five weeks, fought like Lions themselves, competing with tough opposition. However, the true highlight from the event was the sense of unity and fun that each person took away from the day, captured by the attending Sky Sports News cameras.

Mental Health issues affect one in four people in the UK alone, with issues varying from depression, severe anxiety, panic disorders and PTSD. Therefore, through the power of sport in particular, these issues can be addressed and highlighted to remove the stigma surrounding them. Our team understands the importance of creating a safe, fun space to allow people to thrive and grow.

The trophy presentation, to Crystal Palace, the winners of the tournament, was presented by former Millwall legend, Jimmy Carter.
