If you need emergency assistance

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

A constant driver of our work is to aim to:

  • Use the Game's reach, profile, Clubs and players to reduce stigma around mental illness;
  • Increase our participants understanding of mental health;
  • Stimulate help seeking behaviours by educating and informing our community with appropriate resources and literature;
  • Connect Rugby League communities with our expert partners.
