Purpose

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
