Who is Read The Play?

We are on a mission to raise awareness of young people's health issues and guide them to the relevant support services.

One in four young people between the ages of 15 – 24 will experience a mental health problem in any 12-month period. 75% of mental illnesses first occur in people aged 15 to 24, yet . . . only one in four young people with mental health problems receive professional help.

The aims of Read the Play are to:

• Increase knowledge and awareness about mental health problems
• Increase knowledge about local support services
• Increase confidence and skills in guiding our youth to relevant support services

This online portal has been designed to equip club officials and parents with the tools to support young people with their mental health.
