SIX MHS Founder and Chairman
TONY ADAMS MBE
Inspired by his own emotional and mental health issues, SIX MHS is the brainchild of former Arsenal and England captain, Tony Adams MBE
Tony Adams made his debut for Arsenal in November 1983 and played his last match in May 2002. During this time, he competed in 669 matches and became universally recognised as the most successful captain in the history of the club.
In 1996 Tony also had the courage to deal with his addiction to alcohol. He told his own story in his autobiography 'Addicted' published in 1998. The proceeds from this book and his commitment to helping others in sport saw the creation of the Sporting Chance charity in the year 2000. It is now the largest provider in the world of education and treatment for sports professionals.
The success of Sporting Chance has led Tony to broaden his horizons and now offer his expertise across the business community.
