Critical incident expansion of Mental Health Referral Network
Posted on March 18, 2020 by NSW Institute of Sport
The AIS Mental Health Referral Network is opening its availability to impacted friends and family networks of our catergorised athletes and staff in the high-performance sports that we service.
If people would like to seek mental health support or advice from the AIS Mental Health Referral Network, they or someone on their behalf can contact on the below details.
The service is covered Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm AET. A qualified clinical psychologist is available to speak to them about their needs and connect them with one of our mental health professionals around Australia.
What this means for athletes:
This expansion means that along with all NSWIS athletes / scholarship holders and staff being supported, their family and friends’ network will now be offered support if needed as well.
We encourage and invite athletes who would like support to reach out to either NSWIS Performance Psychology team or the Athlete Wellbeing & Engagement team.
