Parramatta Junior League are helping to raise awareness and tear down the stigma associated with mental health through their own Mental Health Round over the weekend of 6-7 August

Approximately one-in-five Australians will experience a mental illness - an issue that affects almost everyone across the country.

This coming weekend, every player in the Parramatta Junior League, from under-sixes through to A Grade, will wear one blue sock to highlight this major issue within our community.

These socks will be issued to every club for collection on or prior to game day.

Every player and official has been asked to donate a gold coin to Beyond Blue and we ask if you would help support by donating to this cause too.

If you or someone you know is in crisis or needs support right now, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Suicide Call Back Service 1300 659 467.
