TAMHI is a mental health charity based in Northern Ireland that works with sports clubs and groups who use sport to raise awareness of mental health and resilience. TAMHI works with sport clubs, schools and youth groups to make mental health fun and engaging. We are based in North Belfast but will support any group we can with resources. Our approach is focused on raising capacity of grassroots groups to have the confidence to connect with their members in relation to mental health. We do this through, workshops, talks, training and most uniquely activities and games. Our approach has proven to connect better with people who like sports and like to learn through activity.

The three-year TAMHI Change Makers project is using the The National Lottery Community Fund grant to work with 35 organisations that champion sports/physical activity included sports club, youth groups and schools in the Greater Belfast area to run a mental health and well-being development programme. The programme is supporting groups to promote positive attitudes towards mental health and creating an environment where people feel comfortable to seek help. Each organisation will be supported to develop a trained well-being team and leaders will be trained in the project’s Mental Wealth Games programme. The project is also developing a toolkit, hosting workshops, supporting well-being teams to educate members, and promoting mental health awareness events.
