Train mind and body for mental fitness: WhyNot?

We love headspace’s headcoach campaign, with seven high-profile Australian athletes including Tom Boyd, Kurtley Beale and James Tedesco sharing candid experiences of their own challenges with mental health. 

With 1 in 7 young men between 16 and 24 experiencing depression or anxiety each year but only 13% seeking help, the more we can help shine the light on this issue and get the message to all young people, young men in particular, that training minds is just as important as training bodies, the better.

At YMCA, we believe a healthy mind and a healthy body are the foundations of optimal mental fitness.
