1 in 5 adults experience mental ill-health every year.
In addition to this, as a university club, many of our members are young adults who have just moved out of home, away from their support networks and into new environments. These experiences can be challenging and contribute to even higher rates of mental illness.
For this reason, Monash Hockey Club is choosing to support The Resilience Project during our 2018 Charity Round. The Project aims to teach positive mental health strategies to schools, sports clubs and businesses; providing them with evidence-based, practical strategies to build resilience.
To support the Project, we will be hosting an extra-special farmdome on the Saturday of Round 12, aiming to raise funds and awareness for the organisation and its cause.
WHEN: Saturday 12:30pm-6:30pm
WHO: all Monash players – juniors, all grades of seniors and masters, Knox Hockey Club Women and KBH Brumbies Hockey Men, any and all supporters and probably a few doggos.
WHERE: Monash University Hockey Ground
– Raffle: Kookaburra merch, meat tray, more exciting prizes.
– Free food spread put on by the Monash players!
– A quick chat about the importance of having conversations about mental health (R U OK?) and info on the Resilience Project
– Gold coin gate donation
– BBQ: snags, onion, hasbrowns
– Canteen: lollies and drinks
This is an incredibly important cause and we look forward to supporting it with a day of fun, food, family and friends!
