The Tackle Your Feelings Program ran workshops in 2021 and 2022 with the Melbourne High School Old Boys’ Football Club through our partnership with the VAFA.
Tackle Your Feelings psychologist Bree Van Ryswyk delivered the session to 38 coaches, committee members and club support staff who all participated in the program, and as part of an action out of the workshop the club engaged her to connect with their 192 players on an ongoing basis to assist with mental health support.
“Something that really impressed me to begin with was the club’s appetite and their openness to mental health to begin with,” Van Ryswyk said.
“I’ve only seen that strengthen through the workshops I deliver.”
