Inglis and Asotasi Help Rugby League Tackle Mental Health

South Sydney Rabbitohs players Greg Inglis and Roy Asotasi have joined other current and former NRL stars in their support for the NRLs State of Mind campaign tackling mental health.


The Rabbitohs leaders appear in a promotional video that highlights the fact that Rugby League is a physical sport and the physical effects are often seen on our players, however just like in society, the mental effects are generally not as visible.


The State of Mind Campaign aims to bring together mental health service providers under one umbrella, help break down stereotypes and stigmas in relation to mental health and encourage members of the community to take ownership and responsibility of their own mental health and those around them.


The aim of the program is to ensure a healthier environment with resultant positive benefits to the community and our players from the grass roots to the elite.


NRL CEO Mr Dave Smith is has previously spoken of the importance of addressing the issue of mental health.


Mental health does not discriminate even in a game as tough as Rugby League we are faced with mental health challenges,


Our Rugby League family should know that its okay to talk to someone if you dont feel right.


Having the courage to talk about how you are feeling ensures you will have the support of others and could be giving someone else the confidence to talk about how they feel.
