Mental health has been a taboo topic amongst sportsmen in the UK since ages. However, it has begun to gain prominence in recent years. Leading athletes and footballers have recognised the need to talk about mental health openly and be upfront about one's feelings. In a bid to encourage this type of attitude, Prince William teamed up with PFA officials and released a one-minute film about mental health in order to spread awareness on the issue across the United Kingdom.

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, launched a campaign that aimed to use the beautiful game of football to generate “the biggest conversation ever” about male mental health. A major group of English football clubs and associations have joined forces with Prince William to support the ‘Heads Up’ initiative that will encourage football fans to take simple steps towards improving their mental health. This year, every third-round FA Cup match had a kick-off time one minute later than scheduled. A 60-second film was broadcast to packed stadiums, urging supporters to “take a minute” and take action on their mental health.
