Stay ChatTY Sports Program Kicks Off with North Hobart Football Club
James kicked off his very first Sports Program presentation with The North Hobart Football Club this month. Sporting clubs are such an important place for a lot of us, they are a place where we can feel valued, and experience a sense of achievement together.
The workshop aims to help participants understand mental health, recognise signs and symptoms, seek help, and how to help out a teammate. A major goal of ours at Stay ChatTY is to break down stigma in sport towards mental health and to help create an inclusive environment.

Clarence FC Under 16 Boys New Stay ChatTY Jumpers
The Clarence Football Club U/16 boys launched their fresh guernseys this month. The jumpers (which they will wear all season) proudly display the #StayChatTY and #RAtas logos. Breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health has to be a collective effort by people of all ages. So we are proud of Jarrod, who is the coach, and his team for this initiative, as we know it will encourage and start many conversations.
Good luck for 2018 lads, we love the support so much.
Stay ChatTY Schools Program in full swing in the north of the state
James and Julia headed north to Parklands High School this month to deliver the #StayChatTY Schools Program. Before the grade 9 students participate in our 1.5 hour program, the team held a 45 minute session with school staff.
This process allows staff not only to be upskilled in evidence-based mental health 101, but it gives an overview of what their students will be learning and hearing about. We at Stay ChatTY believe an “all in” approach is the best way to learn and gather momentum towards change.
Thank you Parklands for having us!
Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Forum
Stay ChatTY is proud to support the upcoming Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Forum. The 2018 Forum took place on Thursday 24 May at the Tailrace Centre, Launceston. The Forum program featured excellent speakers who are leaders in the field of suicide prevention.
This was a great opportunity for people working in suicide prevention and interested community members to update their knowledge and to network with others with a mutual interest in suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
