Suzie McDonald of NZ Rugby will give an overview of HeadFirst, NZ Rugby’s mental health and wellbeing programme.

Established in April 2017 the programme currently supports both the professional rugby environment alongside a presence in community rugby through its clubs.

Suzie has a background in mental health nursing and sees her job as being to constantly learn and listen to what the rugby communities need in terms of their wellbeing and mental health.

Rather than reinventing the wheel the programme is using the platform and cut-through that rugby has, to reach groups that would otherwise be difficult to connect with.

RSVP: For COVID-19 recording purposes, please pre register for this event using this link. If you are bringing a guest, they must be entered separately to ensure we have all names.
