To deliver innovative programs in partnership with sporting clubs that empower young people to take control of their mental health and well-being.
One in four young people between the ages of 15 – 24 will experience a mental health problem in any 12-month period. 75% of mental illnesses first occur in people aged 15 to 24, yet . . . only one in four young people with mental health problems receive professional help.
The aims of Read the Play are to:
• Increase knowledge and awareness about mental health problems
• Increase knowledge about local support services
• Increase confidence and skills in guiding our youth to relevant support services
