Youth mental wellbeing is at crisis levels. For Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) the rates are even higher.

Head in the Game harnesses the power of sports – community, collegiate, and professional – to support teen mental wellbeing.

This multi-year campaign from Beyond Sport, powered by Z Zurich Foundation and in collaboration with Zurich North America provides resources and training centered on prevention, promotion and attitude shifts, and building a learning community to engage at local, city, and state levels.
