Mental Wellness & The Young Athlete:
The Path Forward
While the concerns around athlete mental health and wellbeing continue to garner national attention, the youth sport landscape lacks clear direction for coaches, parents/guardians, and athletes as to how to respond to those challenges.
Join TrueSport and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency as we explore mental wellness through the lens of youth sport. TrueSport is proud to bring together nationally-recognized youth sport influencers through this hybrid event. Together, with athletes and experts, we will discuss challenges commonly experienced by young athletes and address practical solutions that chart a path forward for a healthier future.
