Wolves Foundation, Rugby League Carers and State of Mind Sport
1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue this year but by educating youngsters in schools and offering structured physical activity sessions to adults within Warrington, we will begin to tackle the stigma and raise awareness.
The Wolves are holding 'Offload' sessions that will pass on the same skills used by elite performers to help you build your own mental fitness and a better mindset.
Offload will give men in Warrington the opportunity to team up with current and past players to build their mental fitness. The ground-breaking and innovative project funded by the Big Lottery will go behind the scenes of Warrington's Super League club to learn the mental fitness techniques used by professional players.
Offload will provide a support network for men to improve their mental health and make help and assistance more accessible than ever before by using evidence-based techniques to combat some of the challenges faced in everyday life, such as work-life balance, bouncing back from tough times, and resilience.
Monday nights 7:30-9:00pm at the AJ Bell Stadium
