Student-athletes are facing mental exhaustion, loneliness, depression, and other mental health conditions, but aren’t accessing quality mental health services. Why don’t student-athletes feel comfortable seeking help and what happens when they speak up or reach out to athletic leaders? Athletic departments aren’t always equipped with the proper resources, tools, or services to successfully address student-athlete mental health needs.

In this free resource, you’ll learn:

  • How to achieve better mental health outcomes
  • The ten best practices for athletic departments to implement
  • The role of the campus in preventing crises and emergencies
  • How to communicate and work with student-athletes more effectively

Now is the time to take action and rethink the way you’re approaching mental health in sports. In this white paper, we dive into the state of mental health in athletics, the barriers preventing student-athletes from seeking care, and the reasons for expanding your mental health offerings.
