The GAA is set to have talks with experts from a leading British centre for behavioural problems.
Sporting Chance, founded by former Arsenal and England international Tony Adams, have agreed to meet representatives of the GAA in London this week.
It is believed that issues surrounding mental health will be discussed.
In October, it was revealed the British organisation had been contacted by the GAA in relation to player welfare issues.
The meeting will coincide with a debate about the mental health of Irish people in London to be led by a leading London county footballer.
Mark Gottsche, who led London’s footballers to victory against Sligo in May, will join three experts on the panel for the debate.
The debate comes after a number of GAA stars in Ireland disclosed their struggles with mental illness, one of which included Cork hurler Conor Cusack. Sporting Chance said they have dealt with Irish professional sportspeople who have suffered with depression, anxiety and alcohol problems.
