Organiser's Description

Mental Health Awareness for Coaches

Triathlon Scotland want to assist coaches to support your athletes and other coaches through the highs and lows of life. This interactive session gives coaches and other club volunteers an opportunity to explore what non-specialists can do to help athletes and other coaches/volunteers who are experiencing issues associated with poor mental health. This session will cover a broad overview of common mental health and wellbeing issues, how challenges in this area might become apparent, and look at the range of options to respond and offer support: supported training/coaching plans, sensitive and supportive conversation or sign post for further help.
