A Stitch in Time (ASIT), founded in 2014 by NBL Champion & Perth Wildcats Vice-Captain Greg Hire, is a ‘non-profit’ agency, which aims to provide programs for youth, aged 12-25 years in the Perth Metropolitan Area & Regional Communities. Our organisation’s programs are focused on mentoring, building resilience, and the importance of being positive mental wellbeing, as we want to contribute to changing the mental health landscape in Western Australia.
A Stitch in Time programs will be implemented through partnerships with schools and sporting associations. Initially ASIT will offer programs to help Western Australian adolescents and youth. We will firstly help to support at-risk youth, who may be facing a difficult time, and secondly to also seek young people who want to make a difference and work with their peers and community towards positive mental health outcomes for all.
