What is GAA Play in My Boots?
The ‘Play in my Boots’ packs – an extension of St. Patrick’s successful ‘Walk in my Shoes’ campaign – aim to de-stigmatise mental health by speaking to players in a sporting language familiar to them. Using the term ‘mental fitness’ to emphasise the positive nature of our mental wellness, the packs also aim to remind the GAA population that maintaining mental fitness requires work and skill development in the same way as maintaining our physical fitness does. These packs are designed for everyone and anyone, containing useful information which can help us all work through the stresses we all experience, or maybe help someone else work through theirs.
