According to details provided by FIFA, the campaign has been designed to raise greater awareness of the symptoms of mental health problems, encourage people to seek help when they require it, whilst also assisting in eradicating any stigma associated with these types of issues.

As part of the launch of the campaign, Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, said the campaign will be very important in raising awareness about mental health conditions, whilst inspiring conversations which could save lives.

"In FIFA’s Vision 2020-2023, we pledge our commitment to make football work for society, and I thank the players who have contributed to this important initiative. Having a conversation with family, friends or a healthcare professional can be key,” he said.

The global campaign is being supported by the World Health Organization and has so far attracted the participation of a series of renowned football stars from across the globe.

Along with Quang Hai, other famous Southeast Asian players, such as Chanathip of Thailand, Safawi Rasid of Malaysia, and Vochiengkham of Laos were also chosen to take part in the campaign.
