Offload is a Big Lottery funded initiative, offering a creative, engaging and effective mental fitness project for men in Warrington. The project is a collaboration between Rugby League Cares and State of Mind Sport and offers men the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the great game of Rugby League, and learn the mental fitness techniques of professional players and be supported to develop their own winning mindset.
Offload is a free 10-fixture programme, designed to prevent mental health problems support men to look after their own mindsets and recognise when they or others require further support.
Each of the 10 fixtures hands power back to men, giving them evidence-based tools and techniques to practice and embed within their daily lives. Fixtures topics include; 5 ways to wellbeing, mindfulness, stress management, emotional resilience, problem solving, goal setting, challenging negative thinking, resilience, anger management, work life balance and others.
As a sport, we recognise that a joined-up, fresh approach to men?s mental health is required. Men account for 76% of suicides in the UK, the biggest cause of death for men under 50 and a leading cause of death in young men.
