On Saturday night the La Trobe University Football Club hosted a Mental Health Awareness Evening with the support of Outside The Locker  Room and Beyondblue at The Preston Hotel.

Our members got the opportunity to hear from two speakers, Outside The Locker Room Founder and Ex-AFL Footballer Jake Edwards speak about his foundation and his own personal battles with mental health which lead to him starting his foundation and Beyondblue Erin Davidson speak about her own personal battles with anxiety and how she become a mental health advocate and speaker.

All the processed from ticket sales on the night meant the La Trobe University Football Club donated $1,000 to each to both foundations. A massive thank you to Jake and Erin for their time and thank you to all our members that donated to these fantastic foundations.

If you need help please don’t hesitate to contact either foundation via visiting their websites.
