Wingman is an initiative by Nelson and Marist rugby clubs to support members through difficult times which can result in poor decision making, bad choices and self-harm.
We all know guys are the last ones to ask for help for themselves and we have experienced our fair share recently of tragic consequences, so we believe it’s up to you/us as their mate, friend, buddy, bro to do it on their behalf if they cant. You are Wingman…
If you see someone who might need a hand check it out with them and if there is an issue go to the Wingman coordinator on their behalf and get the information they need to get support.
Are appointed by the club through the WINGMAN GROUP made up of both clubs committees. These guys are in the club who you can go to get completely confidential advice – they won’t judge and will point you to where you can contact clinical support people who you can help you.
The Wingman coordinators names are posted in the clubrooms and contact details available. They can be approached personally.
