To our Bulls Family,
Within our extended family, there are people connected to us who have had mental health issues and needed support.
This program, dubbed WINGS, came about through our friends at Hawthorn Amateur Football Club and we are proud to be able to bring this support network to our club.
We embarked on this project during the preseason and through the hard work of Alex Barr and the generosity of Bendigo Bank we have been able to set up a program which is designed to offer support to those who need it.
Below is the key information about the program which essentially outlines that all members now have access to three (3) one-hour sessions at our new mental health partner Nexus Psychology. These are completely anonymous and are invoiced to, and paid for in whole by the Bulls.
We hope that this helps removes some of the financial burdens of seeking help, and encourages those who are struggling in silence to reach out and start a conversation.
Nexus has been terrific in partnering with the Bulls and are always looking for other ways to be involved in our community – so keep an eye out for further updates on events and talks to help bring mental health awareness to the forefront of our minds.
If you are struggling with mental health, or feel like to just want someone to listen without judgement – contact Nexus on 9500 0751 or visit their website:
