Mindset – A Mental Health Resource for Team Doctors

This resource has been developed to support team medical staff with identification of mental health problems. In addition, information provided includes tools that can be used to screen for mental health problems as well as advice around referring players who may be experiencing mental health problems.


Mental health problems affect one in four people and elite sports people are at least as likely to experience such problems. It is important that everyone in rugby recognises the symptoms of mental health problems and knows how to help.
