StreetGames is proud to support the push for greater mental health awareness and first aid training, in the youth and community sports sector and beyond.
StreetGames is a member of the Young People's Health Partnership, a signatory to the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation, and a key provider of the Youth Mental Health First Aid course - including StreetGames' pledge to train a further 3,000 sports coaches (as part of a national target of 21,000) by 2021.
StreetGames believes that mental health is just as important to a person's overall wellbeing as their physical health, particularly amongst children and young adults. Half of all long-term mental illness experienced in adulthood starts by the age of 15, with three quarters of these issues appearing by 18.
Interventions, such as Mental Health First Aid, are both evidence-based and cost-effective, and will allow your organisation to make a vital contribution to the health of the local population.Read more
