A NEW rugby-themed play is hoping to tackle mental health problems amongst young people.

Squad Goals is a 45-minute drama performance, created in a partnership between Altru Drama and State of Mind.

Aimed at kids aged between 11 and 13, it uses sport to explore issues including mental health, body image, self-harm, anxiety and suicide.

The Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation will host a showcase of the scheme at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday, March 12, from 3pm to 4.30pm.

Health, education and arts professionals are invited to the event in order to learn more about the project.
