Health & Wellbeing Committee
Kerry GAA Health & Wellbeing Committee
The Kerry Health and Wellbeing Committee brings together the chairpersons of the Mental Health Initiative, ASAP and Gambling Awareness Initiative, Inclusion and Integration Initiative and Youth Initiative, to better work with clubs. The Committee also partners with a number of agencies locally including Kerry Mental Health Association, Jigsaw Kerry, MABS, Anam Cara, South Kerry Development Partnership (SKDP) and Nationally with The HSE and The Samaritans (the GAA’s mental health partners).
All clubs are encouraged to appoint a Health & Wellbeing Officer whose role replaces the role of the ASAP Officer. This is intended to better reflect the broad nature of health promoting work the Association is engaged in.
The chairperson and Secretary of the Kerry Health and Wellbeing Committee are members of the Munster Health and Wellbeing Group.
If you are passionate about health and would like to be part of this exciting element of the Association then why not consider taking up the role and play your part in making your club and Ireland a healthier place to grow up and grow old in.
The Chairperson of the Kerry Health and Wellbeing Committee is: Jimmy Mulligan, email@example.com
The Committee and its partners welcome opportunities to work with clubs in progressing the various initiatives and in supporting clubs in their actions and activities.
