Offload in Salford Red Devils will launch today
Offload is a Big Lottery funded project; being run by a number of partners, led by Salford Red Devils, Warrington Wolves and Widnes Vikings with Rugby League Cares. The project content has been devised by State of Mind and supported by Oddballs

Suicide is the biggest killer of males under 50 and a leading cause of death in young males Offload is a mental fitness programme that invites men to come and see how professional rugby league clubs manage and coach players in a range of ways to improve their mental fitness.

It is claimed that men are hard to reach but we do not think this is the case as we think that men will come if the location is safe and the information is presented in ways that are practical in their lives

The programme consists of 10 fixtures where each fixture will have two halves (40 minutes).
