He asked that all clubs put a notice on the entrance to all clubs advertising the mental health slogan outlying help for people with mental health issues. The sign will have the Kerry GAA Logo .Members of the Kerry mental health will also speak to clubs or groups if askedthey hope hope to raise the awareness of people with problems and how to deal with them in a positive way.
The message is that mental health is precious and we need to protect ourselves and it is important that each and every one of us know how to react to vulnerable stressful situations. Kerry mental health are there to help and hope that linking up with Kerry GAA and its involvement in the Community will raise the awareness of mental health issues and the help that is available.
