HRNSW today launched the Development and Support Program (DASP) for the NSW harness racing industry.
This program has been developed to provide industry participants with access to professional assistance for matters affecting their mental wellbeing through a 24 hour a day confidential counselling and advice service.
The Program can assist with strategies to deal with your work and life journey and offers short term, solution focussed counselling and advice. The sessions are informal, friendly and focussed on your individual needs. It can be provided face-to-face or over the telephone, whichever is more convenient. The costs associated with this program are covered by HRNSW.
HRNSW has engaged Grant Brecht and his company Insight Elite Performance Psychology to deliver this program. All counsellors are qualified, experienced professionals who have extensive training and experience in counselling, coaching and elite sports consultation. They provide similar services to Racing NSW and the NSW Jockeys Association, Sydney Swans AFL club, Sydney Roosters NRL club and Melbourne AFL club.
Access to the program can be made directly to Insight Elite Performance Psychology on (02) 9929 8515 or 0403 944 900, or via HRNSW or the UHRA.
Posters and leaflets will be available at all clubs.
Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) is the controlling body for harness racing in New South Wales with responsibility for commercial and regulatory management of the industry including 31 racing clubs across the State.
