What action is your sporting club or community organisation taking to educate and break down the stigma surrounding mental health?
Mental ill-health does not discriminate, it can affect anyone at anytime. For me growing up life was tough but sport (in particular Rugby League) gave me a sense of belonging, structure and a place where I felt I could achieve my goals. Mental health affects everyone and Sporting Clubs and Community organisations can play a vital role in providing support, education and a sense of belonging to individuals that are experiencing mental health challenges in the wider community. If your organisation takes mental health seriously then take the next step and get the Mental Health Movement to your club or organisation.
