about

sports and community programs

The importance of belonging is a key factor in staying healthy both physically and mentally. Sports and Community groups play a critical role in the mental health space. Research shows that social support during life’s hardships lowers the risk of mental health related disorders developing. The more people who are aware and have knowledge about key mental health concepts the greater chance for recognising and therefore supporting people through tough periods in their life.

The Love Me Love You programs available in this sector range from 45min presentations that start the conversation about the importance of mental health management through to a membership program that educates, mentors and supports advocates within your club or group.
