Let's Talk About It. It’s time we make taking care of our mental health as easy to discuss as our physical health.

It’s OK to struggle with mental health

We’ve all been there
As members of the Cowboy Family, it is our collective responsibility to support and care for one another. Taking care of your own mental well-being is crucial and we also encourage you to play an active role in looking after your fellow Cowboys. By becoming educated, trained and prepared, we can all work together to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health.
If you or someone you know is experiencing feelings of being overwhelmed, loneliness, depression, or exhaustion, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of available resources. Remember, you are not alone, and there is help and support ready for you.
