Sports people are no less immune to mental health issues, substance and addiction issues than anyone else. Their risks may be heightened by the intense pressure to perform.

Players may be driven to use drugs to enhance their athletic performance, cope with the stress of high-pressure situations such as finals, manage sports-related pain, recover more quickly from (or simply cover up) injuries

Some use recreational drugs and alcohol to self-treat mental health issues such as anxiety or depression.

Join leading Sports Psychologist GRANT BRECHT, League Legend PHIL GOULD, Gold Medallist Netball Star and Collingwood AFLW Player SHARNI LAYTON and Wallaby WARWICK WAUGH for an open informative discussion.

The Buttery gratefully acknowledges the support of panel members who have donated their time in support of The Buttery and in the interests of promoting good mental health in the community.
