Wests Tigers Moving Forward
This program is aimed at using the benefits of physical activity to improve the mental health and wellbeing of those in disadvantaged groups.
The program teaches participants about exercise, teamwork and positive self-talk to help tackle physical and mental health issues.

- We Help Ourselves (WHOS) — Provides a range of evidenced-based therapeutic programs and projects targeting individuals seeking a treatment goal of abstinence.
- South Western Sydney Local Health District Mental Health Services — Provides quality mental health care to residents across south western Sydney. The services provide assessment and treatment for a range of mental health needs. Their priorities are early intervention and promoting mental health in our community.
