Wearing the Green Ribbon in support of mental health

Crokes teams show support for the Seechange Challenge

Craobh and Crokes Minors unite for the Seechange Challenge

Congratulations and great credit to the minor squads of both Craobh Chiaráin and Kilmacud Crokes, committed opponents on the field of play and committed team mates in the battle against depression in Ireland. Both squads took the time to join forces on Sunday morning May 10th to wear the “Green Ribbon” (www.seechange.ie) to encourage the squads, clubs and communities of Dublin GAA to start the conversation about mental health.

Both clubs are currently implementing a progressive wellbeing agenda promoting positive physical and mental wellbeing, with a range of initiatives being implemented. The clubs have a commitment to building supports and resilience within their club and community under the auspices of the Dublin GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee, and the Croke Park National Health and Wellbeing Committee.
