To coincide with World Mental Health Week, Mindspace Mayo have been working hard to increase people’s awareness about positive mental health. As part of this effort, they’ve drafted in Mayo footballer Tom Parsons to launch a new pocket-sized information card they produced in association with Mayo GAA. The card — which is full of helpful tips and advice to improve people’s mental health and wellbeing — will be distributed to GAA club members in the county over the coming weeks.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast, we do our own bit for World Mental Health Week. Mayo News sports editor Mike Finnerty was at last week’s Mindspace launch and in this episode of the podcast he catches up with Tom Parsons for an in-depth chat. Among the topics they cover are Tom’s own techniques for minding his mental health, what he found helpful during his long injury lay-off and his goals for the upcoming inter-county championship with Mayo.
