Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Supporting mental wellbeing in community sport

Paying attention to your mental health is just as important as your physical health. We are hosting a series of free mental health workshops developed by Headspace for anyone involved in community sport.

Each year, one in five Victorians will experience a mental health condition, and 45 per cent of Victorians experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.

Understanding the factors that influence mental health will help people focus on their wellbeing, support their peers, and foster a supportive club culture.

Talking about mental health can be hard, this workshop will provide communication tools on how to initiate discussions and check-in with your peers.

The workshop will also cover the following topics:

  • a meaningful definition of what mental health is
  • understanding how community sport and mental health are related
  • actions and plans to improve mental health wellbeing
  • a guide to know who, where, and when to reach out for help.
