Fit Minds: Players’ Voice

The AFLPA’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Team have created a set of short five to 10-minute videos to support players with some of the basics of mental health literacy.

Your club has scheduled for you to participate in a 45-minute discussion with an AFLPA Psychologist/Club Psychologist in the coming two weeks.

To best prepare for this discussion, please take a moment to watch the set of four videos below, with content created by players for players.
