Huddersfield Giants Community Trust are launching on the 21st April 2021 in partnership with RL cares at our HQ The Zone, Huddersfield, St Andrews Road.
Offload Huddersfield. Offload is a Rugby League Cares acclaimed men’s mental fitness project which allows men to engage with current and former players to learn the techniques clubs use to manage players’ mental and physical fitness. The project is helping challenge how the sporting world tackles issues such as depression and anxiety, and is already receiving widespread acclaim for its work.
Almost one in 10 men will suffer from depression at some point in their lives. Men account for 75% of suicides in the UK, the biggest cause of death for men under 50 and a leading cause of death in young men in England. Yet only 36% of people referred to psychological therapies in the UK are male.
Offload Huddersfield, will offer local men across 10 weekly “fixtures” the chance to offload. Offload squad members will learn from the life experiences of former rugby league pros on how to cope and manage with issues such as stress anxiety, low mood and depression.
Throughout the past 12 months especially, we all will know someone who has found life particularly difficult and is struggling with their mental fitness including men within our clubs. Offload is a project designed to support our community’s mental fitness.
