Mental Health and Addiction in Sport
The increase in mental health struggles and addiction to prescription and illicit drugs in sports is of serious concern to the wellbeing of our athletes, organizations, and our communities. We hope to soften the resistance to having these conversations in the locker room, the training room, and any other space where athletes exist in relationship with colleagues and the larger organizations that support them. We want to help trainers learn important skills to identify the warning signs and symptoms of deteriorating mental health and patterns of addictive behaviour while providing tools and examples of how to have necessary and difficult conversations with their athletes. How to balance compassion and accountability when working with someone who’s struggling. What underlies people’s incredible capacity to deceive themselves about their personal troubles and how can we relate to them with compassion? How to navigate difficult conversations with our athletes and colleagues. How to support people refusing to get help. How to bring ourselves more self-compassion.
