Mar 30, 2019 11:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 12:00pm


Description

Student-athletes are a unique counseling population who need consideration before and when providing clinical services. However, there is a shortage of research on mental health in student-athletes, specifically mental health stigma (MHS) and how it is adverse to sports culture and its mentality. For these reasons, the poster will review findings from an investigation examing student-athletes’ MHS to psychological well-being, help-seeking behaviors, and perceived performance in athletics and academics.

  • Attendees will learn the mental health needs of student-athletes, mental health treatment and its utilization in collegiate athletics, and best practices for clinically working with student-athletes.
  • Attendees will understand the prevalence and influence mental health stigma has to a student-athletes' psychological well-being, likelihood to engage in help-seeking behaviors, and perceived performance in athletics and academics. In doing so, risk factors and protective factors for mental health stigma of student-athletes will be identified.
  • Attendees will take away practical clinical and research implications to support mental health initiatives, address/mitigate mental health stigma in athletics and effectively address the clinical needs of student-athletes.
