Maintaining a healthy state of mind can be difficult, which may affect various aspects of life. Players often find it difficult to ask for help because of the stigma attached to mental health.
It is critical to ensure the support and guidance required, is made available to players. This is achieved through a network of service providers and partners who have been selected to deliver mental wellness programmes to players, individually or in a group setting.
A national network of qualified, experienced professionals are available to players to assist players with confidential counselling services. Players may approach a counsellor directly or through interaction with his/her regional SACA PDM, family, or team management. All counselling content is strictly confidential between the player and the counsellor.
Financial Wellness is an important component of a player’s Personal Development Plan (PDP). The objective is to ensure that every player has a sound financial plan in place to ensure current and future financial wellness.
Players are provided with training and education relating to financial literacy in order to make informed personal financial decisions. In addition, players also have access to expert advice through SACA Player Plus’ accredited financial & tax advisors.
