ViaSport Presents

Join us for a learning lab focused on examining the mental health landscape in sport. This 60-90 minute session will be facilitated by Dr. Shaunna Taylor, PhD, Past Chair, Canadian Sport Psychology Association (MPC) and Certified Clinical Counsellor (CCC) . This presentation will also feature our partner, Buddy Check for Jesse, an organization promoting mental health awareness across sport.  


Many people struggle with mental health, whether it's depression, anxiety, eating disorders, toxic sporting environments and/or substance abuse.  The impacts of COVID-19 have exacerbated the need for regular mental health conversations and tools to support those who are struggling. This session will focus on framing the mental health landscape through a case study, examining the impacts of COVID-19, providing tools and resources to address mental health in the sport environment and educating sport leaders on the current best practices around mental health.
