At QRU, we hold a belief that good mental health should be a priority for anybody and the responsibility of everybody.
The QRU mental health program is funded by the Queensland Government and the Queensland Mental Health Commission and supported by Rugby Unite.
We not only want people to talk more about mental health, we want to empower individuals to take-action and take responsibility for their own mental health whilst being equipped to support others. The program aims to aid clubs and associations in creating environments where each and every individual has the knowledge, skills and resources to understand and prioritise their own, and others, mental health and wellbeing.
We want to support everyone who identify as part of the Queensland Rugby Union community- this includes:
- Players, coaches, referees, support staff
- Volunteers, parents, siblings, partners, friends
- Administration and operational staff
Both Mental Health Information Sessions and Mental Health First Aid training are now available free to your club or region.
