International Football Committee on Mental Health

The International Football Committee on Mental health is the body promoting the Dream World Cup and is chaired by the Italian psychiatrist Santo Rullo.

The committee was founded in 2013 when psychiatrists and social health workers from eight countries met in Tokyo to sign the “Tokyo Declaration on Sport for people with mental health problems”.

IFCMH is the promoter of both the first edition of the 5-a-side soccer world championship for psychiatric patients, held in Osaka in 2016, and the 2018 edition of Rome. At the moment it is working on the preparation of the DREAM WORLD CUP in Peru.
