Expand The Reach (ETR) Workshop

  • What are some common mental health issues facing athletes?

  • How does positive mental health lead to improved performance?

  • What resources are available if I think an athlete is having difficulty processing a serious mental health issue?

Mental health is often under-addressed and misunderstood in communities across Canada. The sport environment provides a great opportunity for athletes to be supported by their peers and coaches.

Workshop Objectives:

  1. Increase coaches’ knowledge of athlete mental health and mental illness

  2. Increase coaches’ comfort level in asking the right questions and responding to the mental health needs of their athletes

  3. Provide coaches with effective tools and strategies to better support their athletes and themselves

I thought I could fix myself, and I should fix myself, when I was depressed ... Before that, I didn’t even know I was depressed. It wasn’t until someone intervened and educated me on the matter.
