My Football Mind is an exclusive community set up by Cézanne and Rosie for Parents of Academy players. Cézanne is an Academy Parent with her son currently at Chelsea FC and approaching scholarship. Over the last ten years, she has witnessed the highs and lows in the world of grassroots and academy level football and felt that there should be more support and guidance in place for parents and players at any stage of their journey.
Rosie is married to a football intermediary (one of the reputable ones!) and has enormous insight into the murky world of football. She also has extensive experience working in the NHS promoting health and wellbeing. Her work has included developing strategies and programs across a number of public health areas including mental health, and most recently in the charity sector as a founder raising awareness of men's health.
We understand the dedication and challenges that are involved when your son or daughter is in the academy system.
We decided to create the My Football Mind community as we are strong advocates in endeavouring to prevent young players from developing mental health issues in later life. We are all about being proactive and not reactive! We also believe that parents now need a platform from which to source information and interact with other parents to share worries and give advice from their own experiences.
From our extensive network, we will be providing guidance and support from the most influential and credible people in the football industry to give honest trusted advice at whichever stage your son/daughter is at in their football journey.
If you are working in the football industry and would like to share your knowledge and experience with our community or via our podcasts we would love to hear from you.
