Volleyball WA is pleased to announce our ongoing relationship with the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH). As advocates for positive mental well-being for everyone, Volleyball WA is leading the way for all sports to drive this in their community.

“We are very proud of our work in this space and fully support the work of the WA Association for Mental Health. As the Mental Health Partner of Volleyball WA, we are excited to champion the message that mental health starts where we live, learn, work and play,” said Volleyball WA CEO Robyn Kuhl.

“Mental health is so critically important. The COVID pandemic and the uncertainty it has bought to our lives over the past 15 months has put a spotlight on the need for us all to check in with our friends and family and reach out when we need support.” Robyn Kuhl

Volleyball WA has been actively reaching out to its community over the period keeping them engaged with sport, physical activity and eating well. When we couldn’t get on the court as often last year, we took the game digital with a range of activities to keep the conversation flowing.

As an organisation, we have a mental health charter, a partnership with i-yarn and a mental well-being plan we are implementing. As a team, we take time out to celebrate our wins and special occasions, bring our dogs to work on Thursdays and share a monthly Harmony lunch.

Volleyball WA’s ongoing partnership with the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH) has helped to promote the ways sport can help contribute to good mental health.  During WA Mental Health Week in October, Volleyball WA hosts the Fortix Corporate Cup to promote the importance of physical activity to mental health and well-being at work with the support of WAAMH. This year the event is scheduled to be hosted on October 15; more information will be released closer to the date.
