Glen Eira Sports Clubs - Have Your Say on Mental Health

The Recreation and Open Space Department in conjunction with the Community Wellbeing Department recently hosted an Online Coffee Chat. During this, a quick poll was completed which identified the following;

  • 73% of voters felt mental health was the largest area of focus to support a healthy sports club environment, followed by 47% respectful behaviours and 40% gender equity.
  • 73% voted an online evening session was their preferred method of delivery for the above education.
  • The majority voted the biggest barrier for their club to embrace health promotion activities was due to lack of time and no expertise within the club to continue the work.

Based on the above, we are preparing to deliver some opportunities to sporting clubs to assist with their understanding and support of club members and the broader community in the space of mental health. To direct this focus appropriately, we are keen to hear from you and your sporting club on how we can best assist you. By completing this short survey below, it will allow us to assess the areas of most interest and deliver an appropriate activity/program.
