Boy Told He was No Good is Now Captain of England’s Team and Makes Viral Video to Change Attitudes–WATCH



Harry Kane has become the most prolific goal-scoring Englishman in modern history, and he’s channeling this star power to help England break its stigma with mental health.

He’s launched the Harry Kane Foundation to use his influence to help fund critical mental health work by coaching the power of positive thinking and resiliency, especially among youth.

No one understands stress, pressure, and anxiety like English National Football Team players, who under the spotlight of the English sports media endure the harshest scrutiny of perhaps all national team football.

Before Kane became the first name on the starting lineup for London team Tottenham Hotspur, he spent four consecutive years loaned out to different teams in lower divisions. Sometimes whole seasons would go by without him ever getting a sustained period of football.

He kept his chin up and eventually made it into the Tottenham lineup during the 2014-2015 season, when he won Young Player of the Year.

Drawing on that experience, Kane is now using his celebrity profile to fund and popularize volunteer-supported mental health groups like The Mix, and Mind, that specialize in helping young adults deal with stress; particularly through anonymous helplines offering free counseling with embarrassing problems and “please-don’t-make-me-say-it-out-loud thoughts” that we all have.

Kane’s collaboration with the Premier League’s Charitable Trust has created resilience and positive mindset lesson plans for more 18,000 schools across Britain, that feature Harry talking about the power of positive thinking.

He’s teamed up with some smashing animators to produce the film below to narrate his story thus far, and the journey on which he is soon to embark.
