Dozens of footballers from all over Scotland descended on Hibernian Training Centre at East Mains in June to take part in the GameChanger Choose Life football tournament.

Up to 20 teams take part in the annual seven-a-side event, which raises awareness of suicide prevention work and promotes positive mental health and well being.

Big congratulations to the two winning teams  - The Vennie in the GameChanger Choose Life Cup and #have you got a minute (Network Rail) who won the Plate.

Stall holders on the day included Bipolar Scotland , NHS 24, Breathing Space, Fast Forward, Cyrenians  and the  Thrive Team, and the 200 people at the event also enjoyed face-painting, henna “tattoo” designs, and shoulder, back and hand massages.

The two winning teams will take part in a half-time penalty shoot out at Easter Road in October, when the GameChanger Mental Health Awareness Day takes place.
