In the past few years, there has been a lot of work to destigmatise mental health issues, especially in sport. Aidan, Zac, Brandon, Noah and Nank want to further the work that has already been done and have developed an idea for an app that will help players and coaches.
The app will allow for players to share their mental wellbeing with their coaches through a mental health check-in survey. The coaches can view the results and recommend the next steps to help support their players.
This team wants to trial their idea by creating a paper-based version of the survey, which will be used weekly by coaches and players at the local football club in Wodonga.
