Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 and a leading cause of death in young males, Offload is a mental fitness programme that invites men to come and see how professional rugby league clubs manage and coach players in a range of ways to improve their mental fitness.
About the course
Offload is a Big Lottery funded project being run in 3 professional Rugby League Clubs (Warrington Wolves, Salford Red Devils & Widnes Vikings) in partnership with Rugby League Cares. The content has been devised by State of Mind Sport and supported by Oddballs.
Warrington player Matty Russell said: "Mental health is a massive part of day-to-day life. Everyone needs to offload from time to time, and programmes like this give everyone a great opportunity to do that. It's important as players, but also as people, that we look out for each other".
The first half contains personal stories from professional players & referees with their own personal lived experiences; the second half equips men with tactics and strategies to manage every day life through interactive activities.
