The intersection of sport sciences, sport & performance psychology and mental health has increasingly been an area of focus in the ongoing efforts to support and promote the health and well-being of athletes and performers. Additionally, understanding the importance of both individual and systemic cultural factors, and how these shape beliefs and experiences is also an area that consultants in sport sciences need to be aware of in their professional work. The purpose of this webinar is to explore the connection between mental health, diversity and sport sciences, including sport psychology, from a global perspective. Participants will hear from a panel of experts as they discuss these topics and share thoughts about engaging in culturally responsive, sport science practice.
