THE Queensland Rugby League will this week bring the QRL and ALIVE Wellbeing Tour to Stanthorpe and around the district.

ALIVE is an Australian community-driven charity focusing on youth mental health, and suicide prevention.

QRL central division wellbeing manager Trish Drummond and ALIVE CEO Tamsyn Rosenberg will be touring high schools and rugby league clubs in the area delivering workshops on mental wellbeing and ways to thrive when the pressure is on.

These workshops will introduce 12 simple strategies to maintain a great state of mind, no matter what's going on around you.

QRL central division operations manager Michael Jensen welcomed the tour.

"The local leagues, and clubs in the area are very supportive of this wonderful opportunity and encourage all players and staff within the region to come along to one of the workshops to learn how to use the strategies to help in their everyday lives," Jensen said.

The program will visit Sullivan Oval, Stanthorpe at 5.30pm Wednesday, May 10 for Stanthorpe and Tenterfield JRL U14s-16s, girls' leagutag and staff.

There will also be a 6.45pm session at the Sullivan Oval clubhouse for the Stanthorpe, Tenterfield and Inglewood A-Grade players, staff and volunteers.

The tour will also visit Goondiwindi and Warwick this week.
