CAUSE and fightED have teamed up with Competition Golf to bring golfers a brand new competition to raise much needed funds to help support many families who are impacted by someone living with a serious mental illness and/or an eating disorder.  Golfers will be playing over the summer to lift the inaugural Matchplay for Mental Health Champions title.

Mental health caregivers face daily challenges that are outside the coping skills of most people, often dealing with complex crisis led behaviour including suicide and self-harm. CAUSE and fightED supports many unpaid caregivers to sustain their challenging role by reducing their isolation and empowering them to proactively engage with their loved one’s journey of recovery.

Join The Matchplay for Mental Health today! This exciting new competition is a knockout tournament, played over several rounds and you pick the courses and times that work for you. Get out on the golf course, put your skills to the test and be in with a chance of winning a cash prize – all while raising vital funds for your NI mental health charities: CAUSE and fightED.
