Presentation by Megan Hankins-Maldonado, MA, LMFT
During this presentation you will learn what it's like to be an athlete/coach/admin in the world of athletics and what the barriers are to why mental health is taboo and how we can help. We will also learn what life/work/balance from the lense of athletics can look like and how different it can be from corporate America.
The goal of this presentation is for participants to understand the pressures and struggles athletes and their coaches feel on a daily basis, to understand the stigma around mental health in this population, and to identify the needs within this population.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
1. Name three misconceptions/beliefs of what it is to be an athlete/coach/admin.
2. Identify three reasons why mental health is taboo in athletics.
3. List two resources you can use to help athletic programs in need of therapists.
