DO YOU have mental health?

That was the question put to the audience at the Lancaster Football & Netball Club last week. There was a stunned silence, followed by a few hands going up to acknowledge the question.

Love Me Love You provides interactive and engaging programs that challenge the views and stigmas surrounding youth mental health.

The programs are specifically designed and targeted at young adults aged 15-30 years, creating a relatable and engaging experience.

Delivered in schools, sporting clubs, community and corporate organisations, all of the programs are built on the Love Me Love You mission to raise awareness of mental illness and empower youths to get back to school, back to sport, back to life!

The programs are very personally and honestly delivered, based on real life experiences and delivered by fully trained qualified professionals.

The Lancaster FNC audience was lucky to have their very own, Warren Davies, facilitate the presentation. Warren, who himself has experienced mental health issues in his youth, delivered a hybrid version of the program.

Love Me Love You promotes good health and wellbeing for all young people. If you or someone close to you is living with a mental illness or experiencing life hardships, there are resources available for help: Headspace – 5823 8800, Lifeline – 13 11 14, Beyond Blue – 1300 224 636 and Butterfly – 1800 334 673.
