Two ex-professional sportsmen from Rugby League will present the session and will use their knowledge and experience of life as professional sportsmen, including their personal lived experience of mental health, to raise awareness about mental fitness issues in sport and relate this to your workforce. During the session each presenter will share with the audience their personal story, which has proven a powerful means of getting the key messages across with real impact.

The key objectives of the session are:

  • Describe the symptoms of anxiety and depressed moods
  • Discuss issues of suicide prevention
  • List the signs of potential alcohol and drug misuse
  • Share information to improve mental fitness and wellbeing
  • Consider setting of goals and measures for overcoming adversity
  • Emphasise the importance of being part of a team supporting each other and how this translates from playing sport, to the workplace
  • Encourage looking out for and responding to work mates who might be experiencing problems

We will allow time for Q&A at the end of each session, or as part of a walkabout immediately following the presentation.
