The Scottish FA Mental Health and Wellbeing League, sponsored by William Hill, kicked off in Perth on Tuesday.
All 12 teams were in action, with 92 goals spread across 120 players as St Johnstone played host.
The action was keenly contested, with no one team winning all five of their fixtures.
The league – launched by Kilmarnock and former Scotland striker Kris Boyd last month – aims to harness the power of football to promote mental health and provide a support structure for those who are affected by a range of mental health and wellbeing issues.
The league is made up of two groups of six teams, drawn from across the country, and consists of eight match-days spanning from February to November.
Scottish FA Community Projects Officer Gary Macdonald said: “It was great to finally get the Mental Health and Wellbeing League underway after the poor weather stopped our launch last month in Glasgow.
“The players have been working hard to get back on the pitch and make improvements on their efforts from last year, so it was great to see them finally get the chance to do so.
“We’re extremely grateful for the support that William Hill give us to run the league and look forward to seeing how the partnership grows.”
