NRL State of Mind Presentation
NRL Community has been using our voice, in consultation with Australia's leading mental health experts, to make a difference to a big issue that impacts our game and our communities – mental illness.
Mental illness doesn't discriminate. In Australia, 1-in-2 people are affected by mental illness. It's Australia's single biggest health issue and, as Australia's biggest sporting community, we can and should play a pivotal role in improving the outcomes for those affected.
Our approach is:
Use the Game's reach, profile, clubs and players to help remove the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Connect rugby league communities (participants, fans, and volunteers) with our mental health partners and local service providers.
Stimulate help-seeking behaviours throughout the Rugby League community by providing appropriate literature and resources.
Educate and inform our Grassroots Club's through an interactive face-to-face session to improve mental health literacy.
Develop elite players to be leaders in mental health advocacy within their Clubs and communities.
