The Changing Room


Group meetings are currently hosted at Tynecastle Park, with limited capacity. For more info, call or email our dedicated Helpline below.




The Changing Room has one goal – to promote men’s positive mental health through the power of the beautiful game.


Open to men aged 30 to 64, this 12-week programme offers participants opportunities to meet up, engage in activities together and start positive conversations about their mental health and wellbeing.


Since 2018, we’ve welcomed guests speakers including Scottish Cup Winners Andy Webster and Ryan McGowan, former Hearts midfielder Olly Lee & Hearts’ Women Captain Mariel Kaney.



In Scotland, men are one of the key-groups at risk of mental health issues. They are 2.5 times more likely than women to die by suicide each year, with the biggest group at risk being men in their 40s and early 50s.



To challenge behaviours and save lives, the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) initiated The Changing Room with the support from The Movember Foundation and the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) Trust.
