Time To Talk Day 2020

And the Launch of the New Mental Health Toolkit for Referees

On Time To Talk Day 2020, The FA release the new Mental Health Guidance Notes for Referees. 

The guidance notes form part of a wider campaign, called ‘Heads Up’.


The campaign harnesses the influence and popularity of football to help show the world we all have mental health and it’s just as important as physical health. It also builds on decades of work to tackle the stigma and drive the conversation on mental health. 

‘Heads Up’ is a partnership between The FA and Heads Together, which is a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Royal Foundation. Heads Together combines a campaign to change the conversation on mental health with fundraising for a series of innovative mental health services.

‘Heads Up’ has four charity partners – Mind, CALM, Sporting Chance and Heads Together.

Time to Talk Day 2020 day takes place on the 6th of February and aims to encourage conversation regarding mental health.
