Headstrong and the GPA have partnered and brought forward 25 county players to act as Youth Mental Health advocates in their communities. The players are taking part in a mental health literacy education programme with Headstrong.
The 25 Ambassadors will participate in a mental health induction process educating them and giving them the tools and information to facilitate support for young people. As role models in our communities they can further assist in removing the stigma associated with youth mental health and opening this absolutely critical conversation. It’s a conversation that can save lives.
