Mental Health

Tackle Your Feelings is a free mental health training program for community AFL coaches, as well as committee members and other club support staff (also including netball section coaches and support staff at football/netball clubs). The program is delivered by a local psychologist and aims to help participants gain the tools to Understand, Recognise and Respond to signs of mental ill-health in their players. The program is based on the education delivered to the AFL industry, and is led by high profile player and coach ambassadors. Since its formation, the Tackle Your Feelings program has been delivered to participants in every Australian state and territory, and it’s available to your football/netball club in 2022.

Participants complete a 90-minute club based workshop with a psychologist before completing online learning specific to the age group they coach. At the end of the journey participants can access resources and club rewards.
