“Responding to mental health issues and doing more to prevent the onset of mental health issues in young Australians is everyone’s responsibility. Through our programs we want to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and promote mental health and well-being for our sporting communities”
By creating a Speaker Series and being in front of Adminstrators, Coaches, Players, Volunteers and Members means we are in front of people who can make change. Sport provides an invaluable opportunity for connection, and looking back at my own life, being a part of a Basketball Team provided structure in my life which is something I needed. We can continue educating individuals not only the importance of Mental Health, but also provide tools and techniques on how they can manage their wellbeing and feel comfortable in supporting others”
