Dublin GAA Coach Webinar series- Player & Group Well-Being
Nicholas Walsh joined us for Episode 3 of the Dublin GAA Coach Webinar series, sponsored by AIG.
Nicholas is an AFL & GAA Coach.
He is also the Program Manager for the Tackle Your Feelings Mental Health Initiative for AFL Coaches.
During the webinar, Nick took a deep dive into how he uses AFL Professional Players and Coaches as a vehicle to drive into the community and educate volunteer coaches in areas of mental health and wellbeing.
Nick busted some myths around the stigma that is associated with mental health and looked at three key pillars which provides coaches with the tools to understand, recognise and manage signs of mental health issues in their players.
He then wrapped all this up with a mental health game play and provided some practical resources to help create mentally healthier clubs..
