Think Mental Health

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 - 12:01 PM

The Think Mental Health Round is an important initiative aimed at promoting mental health and wellbeing while supporting our clubs in fostering a supportive culture. 

The WA Football Commission has teamed up with Healthway to improve mental health and wellbeing among all clubs in WA, with one key initiative being the ‘Talk to a Mate’ BBQ, which connects players with community members and local support networks.  

Sam Alvarez, one of Claremont's Senior Men's players, is our 2024 Healthy Kids Adovate, which also includes being the club representative across Think Mental Health Round.

Episode 1

It’s important to prioritise your wellbeing. Whether that’s a sauna or a coffee and beach walk, the little things can go a long way. 


Episode 2

Talking and listening are powerful tools. If it’s you or a friend, remember to talk to a mate to chat about things that might be holding you back. 


Episode 3

The footy club plays an important part in all our lives. Whether that’s on or off the field, we pride ourselves on creating a warm and welcoming environment for all. 


Talk to a Mate’ BBQ

Ahead of Think Mental Health Round (our Bye) this weekend, Senior Leaders, and Healthy Kids Advocate - Sam, took part in a ‘Tackle Your Feelings’ Workshop, learning tactics to help with mental health upkeep, the journey between struggling, coping and thriving, and how to connect and listen out for teammates - especially in a sporting environment.

Men’s Senior Squad attended our Talk To A Mate BBQ cooked up by our lovely Monday Crew Volunteers, and catered by our Past Players and Officials Association Members. Our womens and colts teams were unable to attend this year, due to offsite junior club visits.
