The Broncos will host an NRL State of Mind Education session this upcoming Tuesday after a busy week in the South-East Region.
The national program, developed by the NRL in conjunction with Lifeline, Kids Helpline, Headspace and Black Dog Institute, was delivered across Brisbane this past week and will roll into the Brisbane Broncos HQ on Tuesday, July 30.
With major sponsorship from the Queensland Government, the session will open with a site / facility tour of Broncos HQ and will be attended by FOG #167 David Shillington.
The program is designed to be delivered to club administrators, coaches, managers and senior players of grassroots rugby league clubs (attendees must be 18+ years of age).
All clubs are encouraged to attend to help reduce the stigma of mental illness and to stimulate help-seeking behaviours throughout the rugby league community.
Attendees are asked to dress appropriately, with thongs and singlets not permitted.
