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 is a new Big Lottery funded initiative, offering a creative, engaging and effective mental fitness project for men in deprived areas. The project is a collaboration between Rugby League Cares and State of Mind Sport.
Offload gives men the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the great game of Rugby League and learn the mental fitness techniques used by professional players.
Through this we aim to help men develop better coping strategies, have a better understanding of their own wellbeing needs and gain tools designed to help them cope better with life. Rugby League Cares State of Mind.
Tuesday (6.30pm-8.00pm) at Halliwell Jones Stadium
Friday (6.30pm-8.00pm) at Radley Common Community Centre
