Over the last few years we have had a number of players who have been personally affected by mental health issues, either themselves or close friends and family. As a Club we believe that community and being part of a team are great ways to build resilience in our young people and can provide a support system to them in the event of unfortunate life circumstances.
In order to assist with building this network we would like for 12 of our committee/coaches/members to complete the St John Mental Health First Aid training (https://stjohnwa.com.au/first-aid-training/first-aid-courses/details/2354/first-aid-for-mental-health). The cost of this course is $175 per person and as a Club we would not be able to fund as many people to attend on our own.
