About State of Mind

If you need emergency assistance

Over the past 4 years, the NRL has been using our voice, in consultation with Australia's leading mental health experts, to make a difference to a big issue that impacts our game and our communities – mental ill health.

Mental ill health doesn't discriminate. In Australia, almost 1-in-2 people are affected by mental illness. It's Australia's single biggest health issue and, as Australia's biggest sporting community, we can and should play a pivotal role in improving the outcomes for those affected.

With this in mind, the NRL State of Mind program has created a range of workshops to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of our rugby league communities. 

The NRL's State of Mind program has been developed in partnership with Lifeline, Kids Helpline, headspace and the Black Dog Institute.
