This weekend the SFNL will further strengthen its partnership with beyondblue
through its annual dedicated League-wide beyondblue
Round was initiated to start conversations, reduce stigma and increase support-seeking for anxiety, depression and suicide prevention within the sporting community.

East Brighton will also be taking on Murrumbeena in a marquee match at Hurlingham Park for the annual beyondblue
Cup. The SFNL will also be holding a beyondblue
Cup Luncheon from 1pm, with guest speaker and beyondblue
Ambassador, Tim Richardson.
For the first time, this round is in alignment with AFL Victoria’s inaugural beyondblue
Round and together we hope to make a difference to mental health in Australia.
If you’re worried about someone at your club and want to start a conversation with them about your concerns, simply letting them know you care can make a big difference.
If you or someone you know needs to talk things through, beyondblue
mental health professionals provide an expert listening ear, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can call 1300 22 4636 for support, or visit www.beyondblue.org.au
