Health & Well Being

Welcome to the Mayo GAA portal for
Health & Well Being

Our Aim

The Health and Well Being Subgroup of Mayo GAA will promote positive health and well-being in our local clubs and communities. This committee will also advise local clubs of key agencies and organisations who are available for support and advice when required.

Connacht GAA Council and the HSE were delighted to announce their partnership to support #Littlethings & the ‘Connecting for Life’ strategy at the launch of the 2016 Connacht GAA championship at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo on the 11th of May 2016. The aim of the campaign is to reduce deaths in our communities by suicide.
#littlethings is a positive mental health and wellbeing campaign. This campaign was first launched by the HSE’s National Office for Suicide Prevention in October 2014.The #littlethings campaign highlights the importance of protecting and nurturing one’s mental health.
