Tackle mental health at Mantality retreat

Mental Health is a continued hot topic at the University of Leeds recently, with Rugby League and American Football clubs leading on a mental health campaign “Talking Tackles It”.

In a continued effort to help raise awareness and opportunity to discuss this topic, Leeds Sport has worked alongside Leeds Rhinos player Stevie Ward to offer a rare opportunity for a handful of male students. Although best known for his performances on the pitch, off the pitch he works to promote greater discussion around the issue of male mental health through his online platform Mantality.

Taking the online platform a step further Mantality has now put together its first retreat alongside high performance coach Craig White.
