Mental Health and Wellbeing

We will be hosting members of the Under 18 Aussie Rules football teams from Werribee and Hoppers Crossing to hear from a number of guest speakers who have either had mental health issues or have had a number of challenges to overcome in their sporting life.

The keynote speaker will be Tim Stewart. He is a volunteer speaker for Beyond Blue. He became a Beyond Blue speaker to share his many life experiences with anxiety, depression and attempted suicide. His purpose is to offer hope, recovery and build resilience to those who are affected by mental health conditions, along with their family and friends.

The other two speakers will be well-known former AFL footballers Jack Fitzpatrick and Michael Barlow who are now both asscoiated with the Werribee Football Club. They have both experienced many highs and lows during their life. They will share some of those experiences with the audience.
