Mental Health Awareness and Player Welfare
The subject of mental health awareness has been very topical in the news / media recently. As one of the largest GAA sporting clubs in the country, Kilmacud Crokes is embarking on developing a strategy and approach to dealing with this aspect of player welfare in the club. We would hope over time through education, training, and policy development to embed an awareness and ability to deal with this topic as an integrated part of club culture, much like we already do with other aspects of player development. In this regard, the Executive of the club has chartered a small working group to develop this strategy.
