Mental Fitness Program

Connecting high performance athletes with youth to help improve their mental health and wellbeing

The AIS is proud to once again partner with the Black Dog Institute to deliver the Mental Fitness Program (MFP).

The program sees current and former elite athletes deliver powerful talks to high school aged people about how to keep mentally fit through sharing evidence-based research and stories of resilience.

Since the program launched, our athlete ambassadors have delivered presentations to more than 35,000 students across the country.

In 2023 each athlete will deliver eight presentations at a school and/or sporting club during terms one and two.
