Thursday the 9th of September is R U OK? Day

Thursday the 9th of September is R U OK? Day. It’s the perfect reminder to check in on your players.

With the toll that the pandemic has had on community sport we understand that it has been a challenging year for not only clubs but their coaches and players.

We found some great resources for clubs, including the Coaches Kit on the R U OK? Website.

Conversations about Mental Health can be challenging but they don’t have to be. R U OK? has provided this handy graphic to help guide your conversation.

While these conversations are important, now more than ever. It’s important to know where to refer people to should they need more help, a great place to start is Lifeline, Beyond Blue and their GP.

Remember that R U OK? Day is only one day of the year, but the conversations don’t stop. Always remember to check in on your players, members and team mates and ask R U OK?
