Tackling Mental Health Awareness -

Tackling Mental Health Awareness


Again this is simply an awareness event and feels that its relevance aligns itself very much with the rugby clubs. Is it possible to discuss options to promote the event to club maybe at the game or your through your various media channels.   

Our second event of the year will be focussed on raising awareness of mental health and the repercussions for people at all levels of rugby. Given recent and ongoing events in the rugby community, we are hoping this event will help to remove the stigma and encourage open communication around mental health in the rugby community. As well as our guest speakers, this event will host several Not for Profits and Charities who are dedicated to mental health awareness.
