The FC Bayern Campus, together with the Manchester United and Benfica academies, will launch a unique project in the month of March: a cross-club "Mental Health Awareness Month" under the motto of "Promoting Mental Health & Wellbeing in Football, Together" for its coaches, players and staff.

"Mental health is an important factor in finding and mastering one's own journey," says Oliver Kahn, FC Bayern CEO, who serves as a patron for the project. "In the development of our youngsters at FC Bayern Campus, the focus has always been on the individual. That's why it's important to us to create an environment in which young athletes are not only supported as much as possible and challenged on the pitch, but also feel valued and comfortable as human beings."

With this initiative, FC Bayern and its partners want to set an example for sustainable talent development, the importance of mental wellbeing as a fundamental factor in positive performance development, as well as the design of a challenging yet safe and appreciative learning environment.
