Mental Health in Sport
MENTAL HEALTH IN SPORT SUMMARY
Our purpose is to work with the industry to advance the mental health agenda in sport. The link between mental wellbeing and physical health is inseparable, and cannot be underestimated in sport. For too long, mental health has been viewed as secondary.
MHiPF aims to be the catalyst for better mental health within sport, bringing the whole industry together in one place. We will unite and work with players (past and present); coaches; club management; player management agencies; mental health specialists; policy makers; charities; and trade bodies, to effect significant change.
We will build an environment in which the ecosystem can learn and connect with each other through content and community, to create a sustainable mental health culture and a framework for intervention and support - from first signing to post-career.
ACTIONABLE INTELLIGENCE: We provide critical content and information for professional club staff, players, sporting bodies, associated mental health practitioners and charities to build a framework for mental health support.
INSPIRING: We connect the industry with the people and ideas that make them believe in better and give them the energy to make lasting change.
CELEBRATING: We recognise and reward the absolute best in our industry and champion their success.
BENCHMARKING: We provide an impartial interpretation of the sectors performance by identifying best practice and providing others with the insight to raise their game.
LEARNING: We provide the education required to set athletes, teams, and sports up for long-term success and support.
