If you follow social media you may well have seen last month that over 70 Crystal Palace and Fulham fans walked together from Craven Cottage to Selhurst Park in order to raise awareness of mental health and male suicide.

The response to that walk from fans of far more than just those involved was impressive and heartwarming. As a result supporters of Crystal Palace and The Arsenal have now come together for a further event which will take place on the 21st April for the Palace away game in North London. Those involved will cover a distance of around 12 miles which will take about 4 to 4.5 hours (including stops).

The walk is being undertaken as a direct result of personal experiences of many of the participants and also because of the horrendous statistics on mental health and male suicide. I know many Gooners (not just male, obviously) who have suffered various degrees of poor mental health and the consequences, or potential consequences, are felt by most people I know. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone these days alone as one person in four is now affected.

Men are notorious for bottling things up, fearing that backlash, of exhibiting weakness. Gradually those attitudes are being changed in society and large numbers of men now feel able to talk through their problems with professionals, family, and friends. The stigma that once felt so prominent is all but extinguished. Not all have been persuaded though. Male suicide covers 75% of all suicides in the UK and is the biggest killer of men under 45 years of age.

The walks were set-up to raise awareness of both mental health and male suicide but also because it is believed that this initiative can make a real difference in encouraging people to find the courage to talk and find help. If you agree with what is happening please use your social media platform to share the message. This is a positive message from Premier League supporters coming together and can only help to counter some of the negative publicity we often receive.

These days football is followed by people of all ages, across both sexes and therefore getting the message out to encourage people to talk and seek help has huge potential. The event itself is not about raising money and is all about raising awareness. It is aimed at sending out a message to encourage people to open up, to talk and to understand that they are not alone.

It’s a very personal thing for many of us, and I know that you will give it your full backing. Thank you and well done to the supporters of both clubs who have worked hard to put this together, and thank you to all of you too. Let’s continue to be there for each other.

    Thankyou for raising awareness of this. I work with a couple of organisations run by friends who exist to support people with depression, anxiety and other mental problems. The environment now is so different and supportive. I suffered from a depressive episode thirty years ago which I kept secret from my employer lest it was felt I could not cope. I hate Stan Collymore but I cringe when I heard an idiot on TalkShite wonder what he had to be depressed about because he was paid thousands a week. Thankfully those cretins aren’t given airtime nowadays .
    Depressive illness is immensely common and as you say the stigma has mercifully disappeared . These sort of initiatives really help sufferers to ask for help . Well done to the organisers .

    Fantastic piece Dave, well written. I’m sad to say I have been affected by a dear friend taking his own life. I congratulate you on this well written blog.

  8. on 28 Mar 2019 at 1:20 amscruzgooner

    dave, thanks for this piece. i sit on the bus home from work, eyes dripping tears, as i remember my two friends who couldn’t stay the course and are no longer with us. my son’s friend who couldn’t stand it anymore at 18 and left us by his own hand two years ago. my own travails as a 20 year old, and the work i’ve done in the last 35 years to heal and how thankful i am in California, at the forefront of reducing the stigma since the 70s.

    the social stigma about having “mental health issues” has to be overcome. there is no “normal” when it comes to how one feels, and if you feel like taking your life, get help…there are places where people are always there to talk, and where they can direct you to longer-term help. in the usa the national suicide prevention hotline is 1-800-273-8255.

    i wish i could be there in red to take part in the walk. well done, supporters, of both clubs.

    Thank you all for your kind words.

    This is a very personal issue and yet it isn’t, because I know we will all have lost good people to these issues.

    Getting people, not just men, to talk when the lows engulf you is so important.

    You are all stars.

  12. on 28 Mar 2019 at 10:05 pmscruzgooner

    sláinte, cba. and holic, for the excellent piece.

    so often we don’t know someone is there to listen, or that what we have to say is worth saying, or that we’re worth saying it, when we’re engulfed. i’d hope everyone these days would give an ear to someone who needs it; this bar seems to attract those who both can and do.

    cheers, all.

  13. on 28 Mar 2019 at 11:48 pmSteve T

    What Esso said.

    Great stuff H and very pleasing to see that such a subject is not as taboo as it once was.

    Sadly, like many above, I have lost friends and colleagues who have tragically decided that there was only one option open to them. On a professional basis I have on numerous occasions dealt with such tragic incidents and the subsequent fallout. It’s safe to say that on each occasion, there have been no winners.

    I love the idea of the walk. It recognises the seriousness of the issues and Unites football fans in their support. Please remember, it’s okay not to be okay. Keep an eye on your mates. Some may be a lot more vulnerable than we initially realise. It’s heartening to think that asking your drinking buddy who appears to be a bit quiet, is he okay, is something we should all now be doing.

    Look after yourself people, and those close to you.

    “Please remember, it’s okay not to be okay.” SteveT@13 above.

    Perfectly put.

    By coincidence I shall be going to the Palace game with my sister-in-law and will see if she is up for joining the march. Walking all the way from Selhurst Park on pavement doesn’t sound too attractive, but I hope we will be taking part for some of the distance. (Thinks: “It must be over 40 years since I last went on a demo. Well past time I did so again.”)

    Well done for publicising this sir. Let’s hope there’s a really good turnout. Not convinced I could walk 12 miles, especially through South London badlands, but will certainly try to pick it up from the civilised side of the river….

  42. on 29 Mar 2019 at 6:36 pmbt8

    12 mile walk ameliorated by breaks in four pubs along the way sounds like a reasonable challenge to me, and right civilised too.

    a while ago

    cos football is gaelic football

    Watching some of West Ham v Everton . I wish we had the former to play and not the latter. They have already got their flip flops on !
    Arnautovic looks very out of condition and disinterested

    G’bye cba.

    Mark @43, the clock is still there. I don’t know why you can’t see it. Anyone else have the problem?

    Leaving the Palace walk as the lead piece on the front page so the Geordies preview will be tomorrow.

    Thanks for popping in, all.

    TTG @69
    Going to be a tasty game on Tues against our neighbors for the under 18 Title.
    Credit them,they haven’t lost a league game all season,and both teams are well clear at the top of the table.
    Be interesting to see if they come with attacking intent or given they only need a draw with a game in hand,whether they will opt for a more defensive setup.
    Agree on the Ladies,if they win at Birmingham,which will be a tough physical battle,they will win the league and along with City we will be back in the Champions league for the first time in several years.
    Agree with you about Everton finding form at just the wrong time,Wolves and Leicester are also in the mix for a possible Europa league spot,so we will have some battles on our hands in the run in.
    But at least we are right in the thick of it at the pointy end of the season,with our destiny in our own hands,which is a great credit to Unai and his backroom squad,and of course to the players,who have bought into his philosophy.
    Fingers crossed it ends in triumph and laughter,and not failure and tears.

    I only chucked Daily Mirrors at you because it was a lefty paper, cba, and I knew you’d appreciate a bit of Paul Foot. Plus it had the crossword with the easy or cryptic clues.

    If I really didn’t like you I’d have had a bagful of Telegraphs to hand.

    ‘Holic@102: I suspect anyone who has disabled/uninstalled/didn’t install Adobe Flash for security or any other reason can’t see the clock. (But then in a way you don’t have to because we all know it is counting down to infinity.)

    Thanks Ned, I wouldn’t have had a clue. I hope this helps, Mark?

  112. on 30 Mar 2019 at 11:56 pmbt8

    Isaac Hayden has had an excellent few months in the Newcastle team but seems like a decent fellow who had bad luck at Arsenal. Apart from Monday I’m glad to see him doing well.

    Ned@110, Holic@111, Mark@43

    To my shame I hadn’t noticed the absence of the clock. When I came to look for it, there was a discreet “Download Adobe Flash” icon which I clicked and the clock returned, showing a much larger number than I remembered. God alone knows how long I’ve not been seeing it.

    Watched the first half of Manure
    and Watford yesterday. Watford
    were wasteful, Deeney crap and
    Manure nicked the lead on the
    counter – it was all very annoying.

    Linesman helps Chelsea win from a clearly off side goal.

    Cardiff robbed in bright day light by the refs awful refereeing for PL standards!

    A clear pen not given either!

    Until VAR is implemented properly and professionally fans will continue to pay ~£100 per game to watch the wrong result, Arthur.

    the wheels are coming off the bus. let’s hope we can further that process tomorrow.

    let’s all laugh…

  119. on 31 Mar 2019 at 6:30 pmTTG

    Frankly we’ve seen two very unjust results today, one going for us and one against . But Chelsea under Sarri are a very poor side and shouldn’t finish above us or beat us in the Europa Final if we get there . As for the Totts they have some fine players but they also have Sissoko , Rose and Lloris . Third is very possible for us now if we finish strongly

  120. on 31 Mar 2019 at 6:45 pmNorth Bank Ned

    Newcastle tomorrow is our easiest looking game left — which should be a huge red flag in itself, but win it and we go third (indeed a draw gives us third place on goals scored.).
