Wellbeing round details
Super League’s mental and physical health campaign returns in 2021, working alongside our clubs to Tackle the Tough Stuff.
In partnership with several leading charities, the Tackle the Tough Stuff campaign will highlight some of the most pressing issues surrounding physical and mental health.
Over the next couple of weeks several high-profile current and former players have shared their deeply personal stories – including sexuality, dealing with depression and anxiety, and going through the grief of losing a loved one to testicular cancer.
The past 15 months have been incredibly difficult for everyone, leaving many feeling anxious, isolated, or bereaved. An additional impact of COVID-19 is that many have neglected their physical health, with statistics showing a worrying drop in those attending their local GP after noticing a change in their body.
As a sport we have an opportunity to change lives by opening the dialogue surrounding difficult issues, dismantle stigmas, and use our collective voice to encourage our community to reach out, to speak up, and get checked out.
