Avondale FC is committed to promoting the wellbeing of all members of our club community.

Mental health is a serious topic and we strive to ensure that everyone involved with our club has access to range of support networks if needed.

Depression can include behaviours such as not wanting to go out, not getting things done at work or school or withdrawing from family and friends, or feeling overwhelmed, guilty, miserable or sad.

It’s okay not to be okay and there is help available. Anyone feeling this way is not alone, and Avondale FC is committed to assisting to provide wellbeing support.
