SPORT ENDS ONE DAY.
MENTAL HEALTH NO.
You don't make a pass without looking ahead; you can't win a fight without looking your opponent in the eye; barriers are not crossed without facing them, looking at them; you don't start a path without looking at your destination. In Sports, and in Life, you have to lift your head to add up victories.
Mental Health is still a taboo topic perhaps because Athletes are "super heroes" both in the eyes of others, as well as in the way they see themselves. And in movies, heroes don't fail and don't like to ask for help. In real life, it's not like that.
We believe that the secret is in the prevention and training of Athletes and Sports agents. Therefore, the Heads Up project appears to provide the answer that most Athletes do not find in clubs in Portugal.
The Heads Up platform is designed so that any Athlete (and other sports agents) can have the necessary support, from awareness raising, through training and personalized technical support.
To implement this project, we created a fundraiser on the Go Fund Me platform through the Giving Tuesday Portugal initiative during the month of December 2020.
We continue to close partnerships so that the project can be fully implemented.
