headspace kicking goals with the GIANTS

headspace is delighted to announce a new partnership with the AFL GIANTS – a team who are committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of young people.

Accustomed to playing football, the GIANTS will be kicking goals with headspace by supporting various awareness campaigns throughout the year, such as the recent headcoach campaign.

headspace will work with the GIANTS players to highlight the importance of keeping mentally fit as well as physically fit.

headspace CEO, Jason Trethowan, said headspace is thrilled to be partnering with the GIANTS to help promote healthy minds.

“With one in four young people experiencing a mental health issue before the age of 25, we hope this partnership will promote vital youth mental health awareness and literacy to young people, as well as supporting their friends and their families,” Mr Trethowan said.

“The GIANTS have the audience for us to share deeply significant and meaningful topics affecting young people and their mental health. We want all young people to know that help is available.”

Together headspace and GIANTS can work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people across Australia.
