Sport and Mental Health

Athletes are often perceived by the public to be more fit, healthier and happier than others. In fact, athletes are not immune from mental health issues, and can struggle just like the rest of us. Along with the stigma attached to mental health, especially in the sporting world where mental toughness is as valued as physical toughness, it can be difficult for athletes to seek help. That's why SIRC has compiled articles on the stigma of mental health, athletes battling depression and anxiety, signs of athlete burnout and understanding mental health issues.
