Promoting Positive Mental Health Through Sport
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 sports 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 the 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 unique activities and games. Our approach has proven to connect better with people who like sports and like to learn through activity.

TAMHI charity was set up in 2011 by Joe Donnelly and Stephen McLaughlin in memory of Thomas “Tammy Tucker” McLaughlin who took his own life in 2009. TAMHI stands for Tackling Awareness of Mental Health Issues and the charity is set up to work with sports groups willing to use the power of sport to promote Positive Mental Fitness.

Sport is reflective of our society as a whole and therefore it is important that sport addresses the importance of promoting a positive mental fitness for all. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that one in four of us will experience a mental illness at some point in their lives.
