The upcoming Super League round of fixtures will be a dedicated “Wellbeing Round” as part of a mental and physical health campaign “Tackle the Tough Stuff”.
In partnership with charities Movember, State of Mind and Rugby League Cares, this campaign highlights the most pressing issues in men’s mental health. In the UK an average of 84 men take their lives each week, making suicide the biggest killer of men under the age of 50.
The campaign will see those within Rugby League sharing their personal stories from struggling with sexuality and body image to dealing with depression and anxiety.
‘Tackle the Tough Stuff’ also focuses on the work done by foundations across the sport in developing learning and physical disability Rugby League, which show how sport can make such a huge difference to people’s lives.
A variety of stadium activities are planned across the Super League matches.
