State of Mind
The State of Mind program is a four-step mental health program aimed at grassroots rugby league clubs. The program looks to increase mental health literacy, reduce the stigma around mental illness, start positive conversations and enable connections across communities.

Voice Against Violence
The Voice Against Violence program looks to combat domestic violence. The program is aimed at young men in junior rugby league clubs, enabling them to gain a better understanding of what is acceptable within a healthy relationship. Visit the Voice Against Violence to learn more about the program.
