John ‘Bomber’ Brown Visits Foundation Mental Health Programme

Wed 12th June 2024

Rangers FC legend, John ‘Bomber’ Brown recently visited the Foundation’s ‘The Changing Room’ programme.

The former Rangers defender spoke to participants about his own mental health experiences as well as joining in on group discussion. He also took time to ask participants about their own mental wellbeing and offer them support.

The Changing Room has one goal – to promote men’s mental health and wellbeing through the power of football.

We were delighted to bring The Changing Room to Ibrox in 2022 for the first time; inviting men to step down from the stands, into the heart of their club, and take action for their mental health.

The project targets men in their middle years and works to help them better self-manage their mental health while also supporting one another, as part of a team. The sessions are a chance to get away from everyday stresses and chat about football and mental health at the home of Rangers Football Club and it is completely free for participants

The Changing Room is a Scottish Action for Mental Health (SAMH) project run in partnership with the SPFL Trust and other football club charities and trusts across Scotland. It is funded by the global men’s health charity, Movember.

Interested in joining? The next block of the programme starts in August so if you think you could benefit from stepping into The Changing Room email: with your contact details for more information.
