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.

Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday: Jets let it Slip

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
