Souths Cares Connect Respect Resilience Program Wellbeing Workshop

Last night Souths Cares hosted a Wellbeing workshop for Souths Juniors Clubs officials, parents, and carers. 

Eight clubs from the South Sydney Junior League were represented, including Redfern All Blacks, Botany Rams, Coogee Dolphins, La Perouse Panthers, Maroubra Lions, Mascot Juniors, Newtown Jets, and the South Sydney Mustangs joined Souths Cares and Rabbitohs development players.

The Connect Respect Resilience Program delivers Wellbeing support for our Juniors Clubs to reduce the stigma associated with mental health and promote help-seeking behaviour.

The workshop was at Souths Juniors in the Wintle Room on Wednesday evening and focused on a range of topics including Mental Health strategies, Club Wellbeing Champion Training, Connect Respect Resilience Resources and the Rabbitohs Mental Health Phoneline.

The Connect Respect and Resilience workshops share Mental Health resources and training for our Junior Club officials. Souths Cares have Wellbeing supports for our players in all age groups. This year has been difficult with COVID restrictions, and it is most important that we support our players' mental health and Wellbeing. We believe that Wellbeing resources and training can help support our players' Wellbeing across all competitions

Ray Husband of the Newtown Jets joined our workshop and said, “Mental health training for our local club is fantastic and we will definitely use it.”

Chris Locke from the Maroubra Lions said, “I encourage all our juniors to use the Wellbeing supports for the long-term benefit of all our players.”

The next steps for Connect Respect Resilience program are facilitating our Wellbeing workshop for all junior Clubs and identify Wellbeing Champions for training.
