16 October - Sports People Mental Health and Wellbeing


Event Description

Mental health has been unaddressed in the Australian sporting landscape for a long time, but several athletes have recently opened up about their battles with depression and anxiety, also revealed their struggles with mental health and dealing with their schedules of relentless training, competition and evaluation. 

With the recent outbreak of mental health issues in players, the Foundation is organising a National Symposium on Sports People Mental Health to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing among players, coaches, sports associations and to have a discussion on the status of support services available to them.


Free entry, donations are accepted.

This includes advertisements on the MHFA website, social media, newsletters, ministerial events and mainstream media/publicity. The possibilities are endless in terms of sponsorship opportunities.
