CGFC are proud to announce the launch of the Player Welfare Program, an initiative designed to promote mental health and well-being within the CGFC community.
The Player Welfare Program aims to provide resources, support, and information for those who are experiencing mental health concerns, as well as building a mental health conscious culture throughout the club. Our goal is to encourage conversations around mental health, reduce stigma, and teach our players and support staff how to recognise and take action when we notice someone who may need support.
The program will be headed by Player Welfare Officers Andrea Mills and Darcy Levin, who both share a passion for CGFC and mental health in sport. Darcy mentioned at the launch "I feel privileged to be part of the Welfare Program’s initiation. Working together with our players and staff to engrain a proactive approach to mental health will establish positive changes for the club. We stick together at CGFC and this program has the opportunity to develop this further. I look forward for what’s to come."
