Strategies to Build a Comprehensive Athlete Well-Being Plan at Your Institution

Webinar Details

From the professional sports arenas to Olympic medal stands to university playing fields, recent courageous public statements and actions of athletes have focused a national spotlight on the unique challenges these competitors face when it comes to mental well-being and the urgent need for more action. Institutions have begun to respond to these calls for action by providing athlete-specific mental well-being skill-building training to better support these students.

But-is athlete-focused training alone enough?

In this webinar, the presenter will discuss how athletic programs can maximize their investment in athlete-specific mental well-being training by building a comprehensive program that supports and reinforces the mental well-being of athletes across the organization.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the challenges college athletes face–as well as the strengths they bring–when it comes to mental well-being, through an examination of unique athlete-specific data on health, safety, and well-being;
  • Review an evidence-based approach to building effective comprehensive well-being promotion strategies;
  • Situate athlete training and education programs within a comprehensive well-being promotion strategy.
