A Season For Scottish Mental Health

2017 Catch of the Year winner Ryan Miller will be playing his 2019 season for the East Kilbride Pirates on behalf of the Scottish Association for Mental Health, raising funds and awareness for this worthy cause by donating to the charity for all the big plays he makes through 2019!

Out of his own pocket, Ryan will be donating £100 per touchdown, £50 per interception and £25 for every ten tackles, but is also seeking the support of the Britball Nation through his endeavour.

You can get involved directly, by contributing to Ryan’s JustGiving page, or sharing his fundraising page or this article! 

Ryan told DC:

“Mental health is something that has impacted my friends and myself and I want to do everything I can to help someone else.

Many people feel judged and scared at the result of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety – 46% of males admit to being ‘embarrassed’ to admit they struggle with mental health issues.

It costs just £20 for a session with a member of SAMH to listen and talk to someone and help them through their problems. Any penny can go a long way to saving a life.”
