FC Arizona Welcomes Lifeline Professional Counseling

CHANDLER, Arizona – FC Arizona and Lifeline Professional Counseling (Lifeline PC) have joined forces to bring
mental health resources to FC Arizona families. In an effort to become more than another sports club, FC Arizona has
sought a partnership with Lifeline Professional Counseling, one of the Valley’s most respected outpatient counseling
service providers. With more than 10 years in their respective industries, both organizations have seen a need in recent
years to break stigmas associated with mental health and sports and provide access to mental health professionals.
