The Professional Footballers’ Association Australia (PFA) worked in partnership with The Mind Room to specialise their offerings for players during the COVID-19 health pandemic.
With their members isolated and some facing unemployment, they jointly launched the Player Development Hub, to centralise information and resources.
The Hub focuses on four key areas:
Mental Health & Well-being;
Career & Education;
They released important articles such as “How Culture Helps Us Through Dark Times.”
They offered tailored advice for encouraging players to continue a structured lifestyle, stay connected and healthy. They also offered mental health support, with the first three appointments with a counsellor paid for by the PFA.
