headspace Camperdown & the Newtown Jets are working together to raise awareness about mental health

headspace Camperdown is happy to be working alongside our local Rugby League Club (the Newtown JETS) to be raising awareness among players, their families, friends and supporters.

Statistics show that one in four Young Australians are currently suffering from a mental health condition and nearly 45% of all the population will suffer from a mental disorder at some time in their lives. So it’s important headspace Camperdown & the Newtown Jets are working together to raise awareness so people know where to access help quickly if they need it instead of suffering alone.

Statistics also show that young men find it more difficult to reach out for help than young women so that is why headspace Camperdown are targeting sporting teams where many young men are engaged.

The Newtown JETS are more than willing to get behind promoting positive mental health and wellbeing and continue encouraging help seeking among our players in the hope more young men with get the help they need quicker to get back on track with their lives.
